When I was using a card I put some velcro on a my dongle (er my card's
dongle) and on the side of my laptop which extended the life of the
dongle. It finally met it's fate during a thunderstorm due to
lightning damage. 

I currently use a Linksys 10/100 modem ethernet adapter which has the
RJ jacks on a block that extends from the card. It is very sturdy.
Unfortunately, my understanding is that the current production of
these use winmodems for the modem half.
