Not in any recent one. They did release the source code for their old
mWave modems, but they have not used them in years. My T30 used the
"standard" AC'97 modem which ltmdm at least didn't used to support.
The internal Ethernet is fine. I use a PCMCIA (Xircom REB100-56G)
modem card. Note that this card only works with V5, but others are
fine with V4.
