disclaimer: junk box does not mean it's been thrown out, it just means its been thrown in the box of scrap electronics in my closet.
if you desperatley need the card, or you found a new driver that just might work, you can retreive the card from the box at any time
at no cost to the user......... not that you'll actually need anything in that box, unless dial up makes a come back.
