I had no idea where to post it, so I figured I'd post it here. As I am too young to remember hearing the dial-up Internet sound (I was living and using the computer during dial-up days, but when Ethernet was starting to come into play. About 1998-2001) I don't have any idea where the sound comes from. I know what it sounds like and I have an idea as to what the sound is. But, I don't know where the sound actually comes from, like what device produces the sound. I'm thinking that it is the modem that you'd hang on the wall (in the way we have our Internet router screwed sideways to the wall) but I think it may also be the actual modem inside your computer, or both. Or maybe it's the phone? I also have this odd idea (odd to me, might be true) that the sound comes from the actual cable connecting your computer to the big modem. Anyone know what device or devices actually produced the iconic dial-up sound? Is there a speaker in said device that makes the sound, or some kind of electronic inside the device? And, is there a way that I could actually get these old devices to make the noise?
