A recent windfall from the effects of someone recently died came my way in the shape of a DELL Latitude XPi notebook Lovely little thing except for one thing. The dongle that connects the 16 bit USRobitic PCIMCA modem to the regular modem cable did not turn up. I have asked the good folks as much I dare but non are very computery and know what I am talking about. So Question 1. Can they be purchased as a separate item if so where? Q 2 If not where can I buy a 16 bit PCIMCA modem(Now obsolete I am told) complete. Q 3 If the and 2 are no no's will a more modern one work on this old girl (P133?40Mb/2gig) 1997 vintage(I think)
Not sure about 1 & 2 but I can confirm that a 56K PCMCIA modem will work as I used one in my Dell Latitude XPi latop (P133,40MB,756MB ex Road Warrior) for a couple of years. The one I have is an "ActionTec V90 56K DataLink FM560LKI Fax/Modem". I assume I bought it from ActionTec but can't remember now and it was about £50 at the time but equivalent PCMCIA modems must be available at a price that is a lot/a bit/the same now.
