The CEM-56/100 has worked for me since the pcmcia-cs-3.0.x (for some small x).
For a while there it had a bizarre problem where it thought it was a memory
card on boot but then copped if you eject/loaded it.

Yup. It's a type III card (ie uses both slots) which takes both the RJ45 (net)
and RJ11 (analog) straight into the card. There is also a port for GSM, but
I'd imagine you'd need to get the extra cable to do that.
