Locating a proper V92 56K Internal PCI Data FaxVoice Modem for Debian Linux 7.1.0
 
Please advise a possible source and model number for the following:
V92 56K Internal PCI Data Fax VOICE modem for Debian Linux 7.0.1.
As an alternate, please advice a possible source for:
V92 56K Internal PCI Data Fax modem for Debian Linux 7.0.1.
Also please state if a separate driver is necessary from such a source
as Linuxant (which would require identification of the chip set).
Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter!

why don't you look at the hardware compatible list HCL

Voice modems will be a hard find. And many of those pre-dated v.92.

Back when I was on dialup, I had decent luck with lucent cards. Although still win-modems and needed drivers / firmware. I had a USR card that was nice, but 3com bought them out and the firmware I upgraded with during that transition bricked my card.

I'm not a fan of linuxant, I'm glad it's an option. But their function is to provide what the manufacturer "should have" provided. A driver for hardware. So I try to avoid connexant hardware so I can avoid linuxant. There's just something about having to buy your hardware twice that irks me.

There's probably a few lists, but you'll need to know the chipset in a lot of cases.

Or run down to a goodwill tech center and grab a dozen different cards and try them.
