I've just put an old 56k internal modem in a PC running 2K, I can't find a disk or manufacturer's name, and obviously need a driver to use the thing.

Any ideas?

Does the modem have an FCC ID number on it?

Personally my opinion is, modems are so cheap that I would buy a new one.

I setup loads of computers over the course of a year and the one thing that takes more time to find, unless I am very lucky is the correct drivers for a unnamed modem and it’s OS, there are sometimes dozens of variants.

However if you wish to do this for an intellectual exercise then look at the numbers on the chipset/modem and go to http://www.driversguide.com/ type it in and you may find the correct one there.

What about us guys that have actual hardware modems that cost a bit more than $5 for a WINmodem, which is a mediocre software modem...

It's OK to be ignorant; it's not OK to play stupid. Never assume you are entitled to an answer. You are not.
