    The BBA adapter. It says LAN on the side which is why I put that in the topic header. The 56K modem has LINE on its side.

    Honestly, $150 is probably a pretty good price for one.

    They are RARE and highly sought after.

    They have gone for as high as $200 and as low as $75. It's usually above $100 though. I'm hoping for the high side when I put mine up for sale.
    What have you done America?

    Just curious....how can you use these broadband adapters? Can you still surf the web and play games online with the DC?

    if you get BBA yes you can provided you have the right web browser disc and I think there are few private servers for couple of on-line games...

    I am sure I am not alone (judging by this post), but there are many looking for these. Is there a third party that made these in another country or something? I don't know, and it is why I asked, as I am sure that James would be interested in that information as well.

    FYI

    http://nfg.2y.net/forum/index.php?sh...t=0&#entry8313

    it is possible and apparently done for using with Linus and all but if you want one for on-line game it's far cheaper to get BBA...
