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.

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.
