Just purchased a older 486 laptop.  Trying to install a AT&T KeepInThouch Modem.  1)What software is needed to get the modem to be recognized by the computer? 2) Any ideas of where to find the AT&T modem drivers on the internet.  Tried AT&T and several other searchs.   Any help appreciated.

More INFO...

I do not have the socket services loaded. Should I find it in the WIN 3.11 or as a install with the modem..  I do not have any software that came with the modem... The computer does not intall the modem on boot up...
