I currently have satellite internet, and I'm looking to have a dial up connection as back up in case it goes out. My computer only has an Ethernet port, so I'm wondering if there are any adapters I can use. If such a thing exists, how do they work, and where would be the best place to buy one?
 
Holly Jesus you are asking for 20 years old technology. Fortunately not hard, just money.

Easiest thing is to buy a dial-up modem with USB interface, then u hook up said modem to landline and dial your ISP which you purchased a dial up account with, or it maybe packaged with your broadband. If USB modem not available, then u need to add a USB-Serial dongle into the mix, not expensive. This exercise gives you 56 kbit/sec, it maybe unusable depending what you are doing.

A more modern practical option is via your cellular.
