If the internal one is on the motherboard, then you can probably disable it from the BIOS settings (check you screen as the PC boots up, it is usually <del> or a similar key to access the BIOS settings.)

If the internal modem is actually on a card in one of your slots, then taking it out and unistalling any drivers is the best option.

It would help if you tell the forum what operating system you have and computer details.

You will need to make a new "connection" to use the new modem, or edit the Properties of the current one. (But it's definitely a Good Idea to remove an internal card).
