Just set it as a "standard 28800 modem" it is just a rockwell clone like all the other "no name" modems.

i considered j2's answer unacceptable is because for the very reason why i am asking for the specific Microcom Deskporte 28.8S modem driver for Win95.  when i use those generic or standard modem drivers, i dont get a good connection with the same telephone line im using now and the same computer setup.  as compared to a similar 28.8 which uses "its own" specific modem driver for that certain model and brand.

Considering that the microports .inf file is the same as for a "generic hayes modem" with only the Identifying string changed, something else must be causing the connection problems.

The "drivers" for stdnard modems are nothing more then a text file, describing init strings and answer codes. You could easily modify them with whatever hocuspocus they have used in the win98 inf file.

I go along with j2s comments, poor performance is probably more to do with the quality of the third party modem or the telephone line than the Attention Init String, this is only a set of codes used to set up registers for auto-answer, number of rings, volume etc.

j2.... i know what ur trying to say... almost all modem commands and init strings are Hayes compatible strings which is the standard in the modem world... but would it be better if i get my hands on the SPECIFIC Microcom Deskporte modem driver which i believe there should be one somewhere?  and that is what i really want to have right now.  but thanks anyway for the comments.

with ga9ul's comment... i have already posted an example of using ANOTHER modem brand which i believe is poorer than the Microcom modem but only thing is the OTHER modem brand uses its own specific modem driver made by the same company that made the modem and it performs much better than the Microcom counterpart on the same telephone line with the same computer setup.  i just dont know why u still mention about attention lines and modem strings.  so again my specific question is where can i get the VERY SPECIFIC modem driver for Microcom Deskporte 28.8S?  would anyone know?

My father uses an 28.8S, so i called the retailer which said "Just use the standard 28800 or Rockwell 28800 inf files"

to joeygarcia:
Try url www.windrivers.com  on their site they have an advanced search facility where you can put in the fcc id that is printed on the modem card (more often than not). This redirects you to the fcc database, which will give you the name of the manufacturer of the modem,then go back to windrivers advanced search and there is another section for manufacturers or company name search. This should give you the driver for your modem.
