    Internal PCI(express) Broadband modems, do they exist?


    Hello. To save space on an upcoming MiniITX or MicroATX computer I want to build, I'm thinking, do they sell internal cable modems for PCIe slots? As I would not rent a modem but rather buy my own. Do internal cable modems exist?

    Also, I'd have a graphics card as well. That eats up the PCIexpress slot, but are there miniITX boards that have two such slots?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    1. Don't bother.
    2. Get a good router.
    3. Get external BB modem (available widely)
    4. Attach BB modem to router input port (ethernet connection).
    5. Configure router to use router to connect to ISP.

    I have done this in the past, with good results.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
