What if any are the advantages of a USB 56k Modem over a normal PCI ?

You don't have to take the lid off the box to fit it. You lose a USB port if permanently connected

USB are easiest to install, PCI are inside the box and so don't take up any desk space.

I havn't tried a 56k modem with USB, but having used it with broadband it is easy for me to remove and plug in to my laptop for updating NAV etc.

james55 - Using your USB Modem on Broadband. Can you use either the PC or the Laptop with no major configuration problems?
