Using PnP Modem in MS-DOS Mode

I have a USR Sportster Voice 33.6 PnP modem. I want to be able to use it to play multiplayer DOS games in MS-DOS Mode or when booting directly to DOS that won't run with the Win95 shell running, but the PnP drivers are only loaded in the Win95 shell. Games like Doom and such can use my modem from the MS-DOS Prompt but can't find my modem if I exit to MS-DOS Mode or boot directly to DOS. Is there a way to load DOS drivers without swithching my modem to Legacy mode? I want to be able to keep my modem in PnP modem because Win95 autimatically configures it and sets up the proper wave devices (it's a voice modem). I was wondering if I could just install DOS drivers on top of it and still use it in PnP mode in the Win95 shell. The problem is, I can't find DOS drivers for and USR doesn't seem to have any.

I do not believe that you need the modem's drivers in Dos. The Fax or Data software you are using should control the modem. Of course if the Dos software is older it may not list the USR 28 or 36 and therefore you may have to select the AT commands manually. You can find those in the Modems "properties" in win95.
