Good heavens. I had not heard of such combined devices, and IME, PCI
ADSL modems were /very/ rare.

And as the page you point to says, those combined modems won't work
with modern ADSL2 or ADSL2+ services, only G.LITE. I doubt they'll
work with Linux, either.

But you are right. I made an assumption which, although highly
probable, is not a certainty.
