Unknown Modem

I have a spare modem (internal), no installation disc. Any way to determine who produced it and find the necessary drivers for XP?

There should be an FCC number on the modem that can be checked to see what vendor manufatured the modem

Uninstall the modem from the case to check and then search the web using the vendors part number
Then check the manufacturer's web site for drivers

Once you locate the FCC ID number printed on the card, you can go to this site, put in the number, and learn who the manufacturer is:

For many modems, you can just use the chipset manufactures reference drivers.

If there is 1 big IC on the modem, that is likely the chip that you want to track down.

There are resources at www.driverguide.com
and www.modemhelp.org
