Im looking for a USB dialup modem - if you have one, pm me a price.

Also, I want to know, will these units generally pass caller ID info? Im looking to add one to my MCE box, so when the phone rings, the number appears on the TV screen...

I got a USB 56k modem off TM, but it didnt have caller id. After hunting around in my bits box, i found an I56PSP-F40 Mercury Modem that works great - its in my server, and i am sending the CID over the network with TAPIREX. Which i think is commercial software, so I will pay for it if its cheap, or find a free solution.

I can't find any modem which will return caller id info in New Zealand. Can anyone suggest one (serial/PCI/USB)? It's the only function I want, so fax/voice don't have to be well supported. It would be good if it was TAPI compliant.
