I am trying to get an internet connection working for a friend.  He has lost any modem info he had but the chip on the modem has "RCV336ACFW/SP" on it.  I am guessing it is a rockwell 33.6 modem but can't seem to find a driver to work.  Some drivers I have user will recognise the modem and start the call but can't find a dialling tone.  (I have checked the line and it is OK).  

Where can I get the proper driver and will it solve the problem?

Thanks

You should be able to track down at least the manufacturer by inputting the modem's FCC ID # to www.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/ead.

I have found that paticular driver before using the fcc id method, it is out there somewhere.

The ID 'RVC336ACF/SP' corresponds to the Rockwell chipset,
according to:
http://www.aopen-usa.com/tech/report/mb/suspend.htm
and is used within the "AOpen MP32" and "Acer FM336PVS" modems.

The page at:
http://www.aopen-usa.com/tech/addon/modem/default.htm
has hyperlinks to 'FM336PVS' and to 'MP32', namely:
http://www.aopen-usa.com/tech/addon/modem/fm336pvs.htm
and
http://www.aopen-usa.com/tech/addon/modem/mp32.htm

which lists a Win 95/NT driver.

Also, see:
http://www.aopenamerica.com/products/modem/default.htm
and read "Note 5" for an inexpensive upgrade of 'FM336PVS'
to a V.90 modem.
