I use a couple of unbranded £3.99 sort of modems, the way to go about it 
is to find out what chipsets are used in the modem and then verify that 
the modem is indeed a real hardware modem.

Connextant is one company that makes quite a lot of the chipsets used 
over the last 4 - 5 years, but they have many s/w modem too - so make 
sure you buy into the right thing.

btw, most pcmcia modems work fine - and its not hard getting a pci 
hosted pcmcia socket on ebay these days. Depends on what you are trying 
to get.
