Softmodems and winmodems are basically the same thing. 'Winmodem' is a name US Robotics gave to some of its softmodems. You will know when an internal modem is a hardware modem, because they are often for more expensive compared to the softmodems. Also, they like to boast that their modem is a hardware modem, so look on the box for something like that.
