I cannot grant you direct links, but I can give you close enough ones.

HSP56 MICRO MODEM:
---------------------------

http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?action=download&driverid=20000

DriverGuide requires a (free) membership, plus they have link protection, so you have to register first, authenticate the protection (writing three characters from a picture into a textbox) and then you can download.
The whole procedure will take 5 minutes.

US ROBOTICS 3094-3095:
------------------------------

Now the fact is, that US-ROBOTICS did not make any Linux drivers. Instead an independent group called Linuxant made a driver for US ROBOTICS 3094,3095, but for legal and funding problems they are forced to ask money for it.
A free version is also available from Linuxant, but it is heavily degraded. (Max. 14.4kbps speed, no fax support)
See this link for details: https://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads.php

If previous post doesn't work for you. Take the easy way out, pay 12 bucks or whatever, save yourself the headache, buy a modem with linux drivers. :-)

Its very difficult to get drivers for internal modems in linux.

There is no need of special drivers for US Robotics.
login as " root ".

Then  run "wvdialconf   /etc/wvdial.conf "

The above command will generate the "wvdial.conf" file for you.Edit the file for suitable
username , password and telephone number.

thats it.type "wvdial" to connect to your ISP.

good luck

If the asker does not supply a decision, I recommend a forced split between me and uptimecustomercare, as these are the closest answers. While I fully agree with itbeme, the question was about to find drivers for exact modems.
