I have an Ess Es56T-P1 Data Fax Voice Modem. The software cd says Teleconnect on it if that helps. I installed Windows 2000 and it is telling me I need to update my drivers because these aren't compatable with the program. They worked fine in Windows 98 but not 2000. Can someone tell me where to download them?

Just guessing but I would take a bet and say they are not available yet, remember this is only beta software and will probably change some before the final release and most companies aren't going to waste money making new drivers for beta software. Usally the old driver will still work, did you try to force it to use the old driver?

On this site it lists drivers but it doesn't say for what OS

Do a search for modems

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

During installation it tells me it's not compatable. I also tried setting up windows 98, installing the modem,and other cards. Everything worked in 98. I installed 2000 over 98 and it came up telling me it wasn't compatable and it took the modem out.

I checked several sites trying to find a driver for you but none  had a driver for Win2000, there was several for other modems but not yours. The way I see it you have two choices here:
1. keep your current modem and stay with Win98
2. Go with Win2000 Beta and buy a modem that is compatable with Win2000

Thanks for doing the searching. I was really hoping there was a driver out there somewhere. Guess I'll have to pick up another modem.

Before you buy one make sure you check microsoft's site  and make sure you get one that is compatable with Win2000
