Hi Robert!

Your looking at the wrong modem. JUST SAY NO TO WINMODEMs!!!  They suck
suck suck, even if you happen to use Windows.  They are never worth the
$20 or so they save you in price due to their !@#$@# frustration level.


You want to get either the 3Com Megahertz® 56K* Global Modem PC Card or
one of the Lan+Modem cards, if you also want a Lan PC card.  I've heard
good things about the cellular card, but I don't have a need for it, so
I never have used it.
