    Why not get a tethering plan for your iPhone?

    ----------

    iPhone will not work for this project, and I have the unlimited data from AT&T so no tethering.

    Working on having my Mac Pro that is the home server / Home automation / Home Audio speak the Caller's name over the whole house audio when the phone rings.

    Wow - this is crazy. Not that I have used a modem in years, but how hard would it be to support thier own product. I actaully thought you could still buy this, but I just checked the store and they don't.

    As long as it's a real modem not a Windows soft modem (basically a DSP and your PC did all the work) it should work.
