*Impossible*?!! I bought an external US Robotics 56K modem a few
years ago from CompUSA and it has been working fine all that time
on my QNX box through Vonage.
Now it looks like CompUSA does not sell the *external* version
anymore, but NewEgg still does. You can usually tell it is a
*real* modem as the cost is closer to $100 instead of $10 - $20
for the WinModems...

C64 + IDE64? :) But I don't think there is any BBS software (yet!)
that supports the IDE64.
Note: there is also the DUART for the IDE64 which adds a dual port
RS-232 interface. Or the ETH64 which adds an ethernet port...
