I am in a rural area with only a local dialup ISP.
Could I use this, for example, with the Mini 9?
Model 3095 V.92 USB Mini External
Miniature 56K modem works with Windows, Mac, and Linux computers
The low-cost Model 3095 modem plugs into the USB port of any notebook or desktop computer. It's miniature design makes it ideal for travel or use in your office.
The Model 3095 is approximately the size of a disposable lighter. The modemâ€™s short, integrated cable plugs directly into a computer USB port, and the other end of the modem connects to a phone jack through a standard phone cord. The standard phone cord is easy to replace if itâ€™s lost or forgotten, a considerable advantage over the proprietary phone cords used with most PC Card modems.
The modemâ€™s power is provided by the computerâ€™s USB port, eliminating the need for a power adapter when traveling, and reducing power adapter clutter in the home or office.
An on-board digital signal processor and controller maximize system stability and performance. The Model 3095 provides a downstream data transmission rate of up to 56,000 bits per second (bps) and an upstream rate of up to 48,000 bps. All V.92/V.44 features are supported, including Quick Connect, Modem-On-Hold, and improved compression for the graphic content found on the Worldwide Web. Other advanced modem features include voice mail support, send and receive fax, and ZoomGuard advanced lightning protection.
