Need install software. US Robotics Sportster

Posted on 1999-07-06

I recovered a modem from an old PC of mine that I would like to install on another PC under W95. Unfortunately I don't have the original software that came with the modem.

Windows is asking for the installation discs for a
'US Robotics Sportster 33600 Fax/Voice internal modem'

Alternatively, I presumably have the software installed on my old PC, is it possible to recover this software and somehow install it on my new one? Both are running W95

Can anyone help me?

WIN95 detects that modem as Sportster 28800, and works fine in that setting. (I have that exact modem)
