Hello,

I purchased a modem at CompUSA last year (generic CompUSA brand).  
It is a PCI internal 56k modem and I am using Windows 95.  Anyone have the
 driver laying around?  Someone asked the same question on CompUSA site (like below) but
the link to the drivers is gone.  Can anyone else get to the link?

Yes, I know the user I am helping should go to Windows XP but the system is very slow and Win95 works fine for what they want to do.  Would going to Windows 98SE have the driver for this modem built in?

I can't use them modem without the drivers.  Any help is appreciated:

Thanks!

I can get to that page with no problem..

This is what's there


Dear PC: i've installed a modem fs-lec-pctel in another computer, can't find the inslall disk, nor a web site to download the dirver. the fcc number is 2H9-TAI-27146-M5-E thanks for your help geoffrey in warr acres (June 13, 2003)

Dear geoffrey: I'm sending you to the driver download page at the PCTel web site, but the information that you gave me doesn't tell me precisely which modem it is. You might take a look at the modem properties in the Control Panel. That might give you a model number so you can get the correct drivers. Happy computing!



If that's of any help.

But I can't to the link on that page which refers to where I can get the driver.  I need the driver.  Please let me know if you can get to the link for the driver on the page above (not just the page above). Or, if you know where I can get the driver for this CompUSA branded modem I would appreciate it.  Thanks,
