Does anyone know of a company that produces a PCMCIA, PC Card or Cardbus xDSL modem?  I have seen a few PCI cards, but nothing for a laptop or PC Card slot.  I think I remember a Linux appliance manufacturer that had a PCMCIA DSL card to go with a small network appliance?

Alternatively, does anyone know of a small, portable xDSL modem that has decent Diagnosis tools in the firmware?

Best Regards

Card market is too small, pci makers decided to pursue other interests.
For portable dsl test try http://www.sunrisetelecom.com/xdsl/xdslhome.shtml

Thanks for the input, I found what I was looking for.  Sunset has the Sunset xDSL tester which is a standalone test unit that tests e v e r y t h i n g.  It is extremely expensive (you have to get a quote).  

Sunset also has a PC Card (PCMCIA) called Cardtest xDSL.  It supports PPPoA, PPPoE, and RFC1483 (both static and dynamic) WAN protocols and auto-detects line encoding schemes including T1 413 issue2, G.DMT, and G.Lite.  It will act as a full ADSL modem or a single-ended test unit.  It supports up to 8Mbps downstream.  It is also based on the Alcatel chipset which supports a majority of DSLAMs around the world.
