3061 is a true winmodem whose PCI activity has been
unofficially reportedly known to have a burst-rate of
a staggering 23Mbps. (33-23=) 11 Mhz PCI bus anyone?

On other hand, Efficient SpeedStream 3060 is a
bon-fide true DSL PCI adapter card with
downstream-only PCI accesses where its microcode is
loaded into its adapter, but again, its microcode is
NDA'd and more expensive than 3061.

Neither (and all other DSL and Winmodem adapter cards)
are going to make a viable candidate for (if any)
Linux-adapter-of-the-year award EVER ... until we
successfully and collectively apply Linux-PR
guidelines of tactful campaigning the chipset
manufacturers into releasing their datasheets (oh, yes
Alan): and demand a downstream-PCI-only adapter.

Chicken and the egg dilemna for both sides.
