Where can I get the latest drivers for a Rockwell k56soft modem (uk). I cannot obtain the manufacturer.

Otherwise, how do i get the best out of what seems to be a rather poor performing modem?

We need a model number to give a link to the modem driver you want.

The comments already given are correct and without more information it is hard to troubleshoot this question correctly but as a tech support guy these are the kinds of questions we get everyday and the lack of detail is most likely because he does not have the information. In this case going to www.56k.com and going through the information there on how to obtain model numbers and the links and information on how to get init strings where to put them into your system and where to download drivers will help. Also the other information on there about why a 56k modem might be performing poorly will prove invaluable in the troubleshooting process and in giving us links to drivers and init strings. Also alot of information in how to get the most out of this modem. Of course with a question as general as this one it is hard to giva an answer but the above information can be used to troubleshoot any modem starting from almost any amount of detail.

So rayp,  what you are offering in the way of an answer to dlittley's question?  What you stated was  a bunch of generalities with no new information addressing the problem.  Did you click the answer box by accident?

The only answer to the question as asked is that we need more information I have given dittley a way to get that information and a way to use that information when dittley gets it. Given the question it is as close to an answer as is possible. You think I'm wrong post an answer of your own.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
