Yo I am planning to get a new modem at the end of next month. I plan to get a Zoltrix 33.6 which cost RM140 here now.

Any comments? Is this a good choice?

This is an Internal modem. Or maybe I should get an external. Is it true that the risk of getting my motherboard fried is higher with an internal modem? Hmm.....

Last time, to use an external modem at that speed, we would need a very fast UART chipset on our serial port. Is the UART chipset on an ASUSTECH Pentium II ATX motherboard fast enough?

Gee that's about all. Pls give me some usefull links. :)

Personally, I would not get the Zoltrix 33.6 modem for 2 reasons.
   #1- Zoltrix-- I would not reccomend Zoltrix, Try ZOOM or US Robotics.
   #2- 33.6  -- I would get a V.90 Modem (ITU Standard for 56k)

If you do Decide to get a Zoltrix modem, then you're concerns about the UART should be put to rest. The UART(s) in newer PC's (pentium and above) are Much faster than the fastest modems made today. Any Pentium II shouldn't have any problems.

Hmm I would not get a US Robotics. Because It's Very Expensive.

And I would not get any other brand if i'm getting a 56k bcoz my ISP only supports X2 technology. :(

Anyway. thanks.
