Odd. At one time (last fall) I was able to run both the Ethernet and
modem on my RBEM56G-100 card just fine. Sometime between then and last
month, it stopped working. (RBEM56G-100 is the CardBus version of the
REM56G-100 PCCard.) The Ethernet still works, but I really don't need
that part. Maybe I should break down and get a PCMCIA modem card, but
I'm afraid that I will get stuck with a WinModem.
