Can anyone confirm what internal modem the MF279 uses? I know it is a PCI card, but I can not confirm if it is a CAT 6 Modem.  I would like to be able to locate drivers for this modem so that I can connect it directly to my laptop via a usb to PCI adapter.  I'm trying to salvage what I can from the device. It is otherwise not usable at my location due to lack of options available on the user gui. Any help would be appreciated.

    Sorry! Ethernet (Cat6) and Wi-Fi connectivity are the only Internet Access options for Laptops, Roku, etc. If you are thinking of getting inside of this unit to tinker with another type of connection, there are other forums where people practice with firmware modifications with these MF279's including unlocking them for use with T-Mobile. They may even have pictures to show where the 5-pin connectors would go for a USB hookup. (Reading through these forums is for the seriously dedicated!)
