We make hardware and software to allow your vintage computer to get online again!
Welcome to The Old Net store.
I am a vintage computer enthusiast with a particular interest in old-fashioned internet and connectivity.
In February of 2019 I created TheOldNet.com as a way for people like me to browse the 1990's internet on 1990's computers. Please check it out!
I have a dozen or so computers with dialup modems that I thought were effectively useless. I thought this was a shame and a waste. I started to learn about all of the different ways to connect computers together using modems. Everything from dry-line voltage induction, to building an in-house telephone network using VOIP to modem emulation.
My goal is to provide these products to you with a well thought out design, a quality build, and a reasonable price. I ship from Canada and I try to keep the shipping cost as low as possible, but shipping isn't cheap from Canada, especially with tracking.
I try to ship all orders within 2 days to 2 weeks. Sometimes I get a quick spike in orders, if someone makes a YouTube video for example. In this case it takes me longer to put the orders together.
When you receive a shipping confirmation that doesn't mean it has physically shipped. It means I created a shipping label and updated the tracking status. This is because it's easier for me to keep track of things without making a mistake.
If I ship a product on Friday it may not get entered into the postal system until Monday. If there is a holiday in Canada it may be delayed by that additional day.
The inventory level does not represent the number of products that are pre-assembled. Products are assembled when ordered. The inventory level is a fuzzy calculation of how many raw materials I have on hand and how many finished products I think I can assemble in the estimated time frame.
