I'm looking for a product that I haven't been able to find so far. I have a
Dell Inspiron 4000 Laptop I'm using as a Linux notebook. This machine has a
MiniPCI slot in it. Originally, it only had a MiniPCI modem, but I had a
MiniPCI Modem/Ethernet combo card lying around, so I added that to it. This
machine also has built in 802.11b antennas.
Now, I want to add Wifi to this machine, but don't want to sacrifice
Ethernet, and preferably the modem. Newer laptops (Like my Inspiron 4150)
have the Modem and Ethernet built on the motherboard, and the wireless card
is in the MiniPCI slot, but this machine has none on the motherboard.
Does anyone make a MiniPCI card that has a 56K modem, Ethernet, and 802.11b
all on one card? I found one card that had both 802.11b and Ethernet on the
same card, but I'd still have to give up the modem. I'd like to have all 3
without the use of PCMCIA cards if possible-does any such card exist? Of
course, I'm planning on using it in Linux, so it needs Linux drivers too.
