Thanks, Ron White >A hardware guru I am not. :( I am :-) >Do I take my modem out to install the Ethernet card? Not unless you have used up all of your available slots. You can tell this when you open the box. >How will I fax? Unless you have to remove the modem, same as it ever was... >Can I still use my winfax program? Same. >should I transfer my 56K modem and give it to my folks and take their 33.6 K No reason not to, most fax machines are only 33.6 anyway... >Will I still be able to have a phone in this room? Yes, one way or another. >Does it still plug into the modem or into the Ethernet card? If the modem stays leave it there, if it goes and the Ethernet card has a jack, move it there. If there isn't a jack on the Ethernet card then there is probably a way to split the incoming line, this I'm not sure of since I haven't done it myself.
