Modem Connection

I have a FastMac V.34 external modem running on a Macintosh IIci, using Earthlink as my ISP.  It has been working fine for 2 years. Now it won't connect.  Earthlink has tried everything and they tell me I need to re-install the modem driver.  I can't find the disk for this modem, where can I go to download the modem driver and put it on a floppy since I can't conect on that computer to download it?  Thanks.

Here is some information you may be able to use to connect.  The initialization string for your modem should be:

Boca FastMac V.34 ---> AT&F&C1&D2&K3%C1%E1S95=47

Receiving the correct initialization string should allow it to accept most normal modem commands properly.

However, this is not necessarily an easy thing.  Therefore, you can download the remote access script at:
ftp://ftp.bocaresearch.com/Drivers&Software/File_area_14/MACSCRPT.SIT

Let me know how this works... it may behave differently depending on what version of the system software you are running and if you are using apple remote access as opposed to something such as freePPP.  If you have other questions, I am sure the folks at boca research can help you, www.bocaresearch.com - they seem to have a good support site there, with everything you'd need.

Hope this answers your question!
