David,
I have a MacIIci with a Hustler NuBus card that provides 2
high-speed serial ports that will go up to 115K, or 1 port
at 230K. I got the card so that I could get the full benefit of
a V.34 modem with compression (115K with 230K DTE interface).
Sounds like it would due the trick for you. Its made by a company
called Creative Solutions Inc.
4701 Randolf Road, Suite 12
Rockville, MD 20852
(800) 367-8465
(301) 984-0262
FAX (301) 770-1675

As I recall, the board was around $200.

I have no affiliation with CSI except as a satisfied customer. YMMV
