I have a second hand computer.
It had a modem, that was not installed.
The modem has no name on it.
I have th fcc number and some other info on it.
Where and how can I find out EXACTLY what kind of modem it is, and download the PROPER driver?
The FCC Id is  DK4SM-24HN/I
      It has a Fcc Reg. No = DK4TAI-61660-MD-E
      It has This serial number thing on it too - KB3105-03
      The model number is SM-24HN/I
      REN:0.88B USOC:RJ11C is also written on it.

This is a GVC manufactured modem for IBM. It is a 2400 baud modem model SM-24HN/I. The drivers are standard in 95 & 98, so there is no need to download any driver.

Here is some additional modem string info if necessary.

Hope this helps,

I used the following link to input the FCC ID's that you placed in your question.

http://www.sbsdirect.com/fccenter.html

It did not locate the Exact modem there, but did indicate that GVC (a popular OEM manufacturer of modems) was the most likely to have made this one.

I then searched using
Http://www.metacrawler.com   for "SM-24HN-1"

I was able to locate this site that pointed me to IBM

http://www.redoc.com/download/modem.int

As I don't have Win3.1 installed on any of my machines here, I am not sure if there are any drivers by default that come with it. I will keep an eye out and see if I can locate any.

Good Luck,
Craig
