Just wondering if anyone has tried to put a PCI card modem in to any kind of mac (but specifically the B+W G3). It seems that buying a new USB modem (thats mac compatible) would cost almost as much as the machine is worth...
Unfortunately most USB and PCI card modems are PC only.
wow that's quite a predicament. I looked all over and found nothing! I couldn't believe it. Ur right that mac compat usb modems are not worth it. You can easily find pci pc modems for next to nothing (or free after rebate). Maybe you could just win a rev D imac with a modem included? :rolleyes: I'm going to keep looking though...this is peaked my interest. I guess there's no money to be made in modems anymore so nobody makes em. BTW, didn't USR and GV both go out of biz?

Because I am such a nice guy, in my free time I found a 3Com US Robotcs 56k Modem also, that is supposedly Mac as well. Now, with this option, I'd go with this as opposed to the Jaton I popped up previously. The US Robotics modems are known to work a lot more longer than most Jaton products ever do. Also you will have the option to put in INIT strings. That will allow you to drop it from Flex, to V.92 or V.90 specifics. If you have no clue what the heck I just said, you can ignore it, and leave it as 'way better modem'. Atleast it's not a Conexant
