YES! Works great. Have one even retrofited on an RDI IPX.

While SMCC uses a "modified" US Robotics card for their discontinued--
The /etc/driver_aliases file should then be modified to include an entry
(for the example modem card) as follows:
pcser "PC,Intel MODEM 2400+ iNC110US A-0"
After the driver_aliases file is modified and the system is rebooted, the
card should be recognized.
Look at /etc/remote to see which name in your version of the OS the direct
PCMCIA is: pcmcia0, pc0 or ..
Do a tip. Type AT, see OK and :-)
Since we don't sell or support the US Robotics card I can't tell you what
configuration entries in all the other places you will need---
but it just like any other modem and you need to read the documentation to
set the correct flow control,....
Hope this helps,
