OK. I found the card, but it's not clear what information you are
looking for. It's an Intel card. Model M3AWEB56GA. It looks like it's
a combo modem and WiFi card, but I could not find any reference to it
on Intel's web page.
How does this help with getting a driver,though? (I'll admit to near
total ignorance as far as PC hardware is concerned.) It's certainly an
Agere WinModem of some sort.
Thanks for your efforts on this!
