I would like to have him call my PC via Cell modem to PC modem, log inot internet connection and have internet access access through sharing my connection.
I have a D-Link 4 port router.

Normally, you'd use the cell phone like a regular dial-up modem to the ISP.

In your case, I guess you want him to call your spare line, you configure your PC for remote access (he logs into your 'network' of 1 pc), and now that he's on your network he can share your 'net connection.

Don't know if that's possible... I've dial-up'ed to remote lans and accessed the internet thru there (incredibly slow when you're expecting DSL speed and you get dial-up speed...), but I don't know if it works to a single PC (though I would expect it does as I authenticate to a PC).
