I'd agree. Steer clear of PCI ADSL modems - stick to ethernet ones.
Also, a tip from a Telstra technician who came out to a place where I
had installed ADSL and was having connection problems (it wouldn't stay
connected - in fact would disconnect for hours at a time) - stay away
from DLink as far as ADSL modems go. Changed to a NetGear and the
problem went away - nothing to do with the line as originally thought.

has anyone had any experience with setting up PCI ADSL Modem? There seems
to be almost nothing in google about it; should that be enough of a
to not go that way? It would be a shame, because one less addition to the
cable HELL under my desk would be a blessing!
Ethernet ones are getting pretty cheap these days and offer much more
ease in setting up.
