    I'm parting out an old Toshiba laptop( possibly an A60?) and took out the pcmcia cage from it. It had the card pictured below still inserted in it and I am wondering what the heck it is? It has absolutely no markings on it and can probably only be identified by the one single port it has on it. I do not have a PCMCIA to USB adapter to try it out and am trying to not have to purchase one to find out! I hope the pictures are good enough, because they aren't the best :ohwell:

    I'm going to guess maybe a PCMCIA 56k modem, but that's just a guess.

    I just looked up some pics of the modems and yep that damn well could be it! I can't find any definitive pics of the jack on the other ones, but it looks very close.

    Really, even if you do figure out what it is, without the dongle it is pretty useless anyway.
