Yes. Only with a truly serial external modem, can you be assured a
non-Winmodem (Winmodem being controllerless).

Though the Dynex product page says:

	Winmodem (Controllerless) No

I have very little faith in it, I have seen quite a few modems claim to
not be controllerless... only to find that they classify the Main
processor (The Pentium/Athlon... etc processor) to be the controller. So
it is marketing that lies.
