ATM (Asynchronous Transfere Mode) is just another Point to Point Protocol that connects you to your ISP instead of Ethernet.

Modems sold in the USA probably don't include ATM as an option as ATM is mostly used in Europe.

The TCP/IP Internet protocol is encapsulated within the Ethernet or ATM protocols as required.

That would make sense wouldn't it...

You should really try using google some time. There's information freely available on the web for anyone who know's how to do a google search.

You could also click on this link for a brief description of ATM.
