    I'm buying a VC-11 MB that has a CNR slot at the bottom. Why? What's the great catch with this. It already has onboard LAN: Realtek RTL8100L 10/100Mbps LAN. What's ya'll's take on that?

    CNR's can be for modems as well. There is probably one that comes with the board. Kind of an outmoded connector before they even put the thing on the market.

    While CNR modems and Lan cards may seem nice, they rely on the cpu. You are much better off just buying a good quality modem or NEC rather than having a sub-par CNR card taking power from your CPU
