Check out this page:
I'm not a member so I cannot read the specs.
But, this page says that mini-PCI supports standard side-band signals for communications. I'm thinking that any Mini-PCI network card should be able to use the RJ-45 port on the back if the communication side-band signals support 10/100 ethernet.
Can anyone confirm this?
This would be great because Xircom, Action Tec, IBM, and 3COM all have mini PCI network cards which could be used by those of us that have the HPNA module.
Dell, Gateway, IBM and others sell systems with these mini PCI cards. Does anyone have a laptop with one that they could try out in their GCT to confirm this?
Many of the Mini-PCI ethernet cards also have 56k modems which would allow removal of the built in modem to make room for a hard drive.
