The best place would be to go to Gateways site and do a search based on the gateway system that you are trying to locate a modem driver for. Hope this helps.

Another place to check if you haven't done so already is in the disk set that Gateway includes with the computer. They normally include a driver disk with the drivers specific to a given computer.
As to whether you can network the 2 computers, it depends on how the computers are configured. Do they both have network cards? Are they both in the same room, or house? If the computers are in seperate locations and the only way of getting to the Internet is the modem, you obviously have a problem.
If they are both in the same room and both have network cards, the lack of a modem shouldn't interfere.
Hope this helps.
