I have an internal modem, "SupraExpress 56i V PRO". It is setup and works fine on one of my computers but I want to put it in another computer. I remember having problems setting it up originally but I can't remember how I eventually set it up.
Anyway, when I try and install it on the other computer, firstly windows 2000 won't detect it. Secondly, when I install it using the manufacturers drivers it still won't work and windows then detects a "PCI Contoller" or something very similar.
Please, any ideas?

You need the Win2000 drivers for it - Win95/98 won't work.

Many modems are detected as a PCI Serial Controller and are not identified by name until the drivers are actually located and installed.  DTH is right, you will need the Win2000 drivers for it to work.
