Just get the cheapest card you can get. Like those NE2000 PCI clones
from D-Link (I think they have a BNC on them also and can only do
10MBps but) what the hey, if you are only using it for the modem :)
You will most likely not get DSL faster than that anyway.

3Com cards like 3c59x are great but are an overkill just to connect
to a modem.
