Is this the USB modem or the external DSL modem? If the second then you don't need a driver, you need to configure the IP settings on your network.

use device manager - right click the unknown usb device and select update driver - chosse specific location and point it to the folder with the unknown files in it ( they are probabky .ini files)

Just a note - that is a really crap modem, if I were you I wouldnt bother. Cut your loss' and go buy a Dlink or something.
