You can hook up a TA (aka. ISDN modem) such as the ZyXel 1486DI (?)
or one from Motorola. Since these hook to the serial port you can handle
them just like an external modem. Jordan Hubbard is using a setup
like this with great success.
I have tried the external modems e.g. 3com, Motorola
and they all worked fine. But I do like to use an
internal card (because I hate those bulky AC adaptors).
However, Motorola also makes an ISA
card which is the internal card version of the Bitsurfer.
Have anyone had any experience with this card ? If this
card uses the similiar AT commands like the external one,
we should be able to modify the modem interface sequences
to make it look like a serial port/analog modem .
I have played with this card just a little bit. Unfortunately,
it is Plug-n-Play and I haven't gotten it working with FreeBSD...
are there PnP drivers somewhere?
The external Bitsurfer Pro is very nice. It does async->sync PPP
conversion which is handy & lets you avoid the v.120 overhead.
