Hello, Tom.

I bought a BeWAN PCI ADSL modem from the now defunct "linuxdsl.co.uk", 
who promoted it as 'the' PCI ADSL modem for Linux:


It does work very well, but I don't use it now because I've got a BT 
Home Hub :-)

You're welcome to have my BeWAN modem FOC if you pay the postage. Please 
contact me off-list and give me your postal address if you want it.
