Greetings, computech1 !

You need to find the model number of the modem and then locate the modem.  Windows Vista should have most modem drivers stored in its CD.

Use Everest to determine modem model and find the driver
Everest Home Edition
http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html
or
Everest Ultimate Editon Trial

or
Driver Magic

Best wishes!

Everest should suggest a download site for the drivers.  Here is one

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloads1-3.aspx?lineid=1&famid=3&series=16&Software=True

Since Windows Vista is beta, try using Windows XP version.

Hi war1,

- Everest doesn't suggest a driver ... on my other network card it does .. not on this one.
- I tried the XP driver from your link .. isn't working
- The card is from Itex company and not Realtek as your link suggest.

He He, Itex principals decided to pursue other interests long time ago.
You do not seriously expect them to fund driver development, do you?

computech1,

Any update?  If the Windows XP driver does not work in Windows Vista, then you will have a get a new modem that will support Vista.

"It proved far easier for me to buy an external job that worked as soon as I pressed the 'on' switch. However, it looks like other people have been more successful than I was. Here is the email I received (10 Feb 2004) that gives me the most hope that it's possible to get an ITeX-based Apollo2 modem to work..."

So email Itex to give you a driver, ebay/shop for another modem, or swap your modem with someone who doesn't run Vista...

hi there

pls have a look at this driver this is free and u can download. I think this should work. but my sincere advise is to try to get a external dsl modem which would minimize the usage of ur computer resources as the internal pci cards try to utilize the memory and processor of the computer and that would need more resources.

This driver is for all the version of windows. Vista being a new OS it does not say it supports but there is not much change in the way the OS communicates with devices after windows2000 so i believe there should not be any issues

http://www.soft32.com/download_183952.html

This is the link for the linux drivers hope this will also work

http://dsl.linux.it/ChipsetItex

The company which made ur card is under liqudation so u would not get support from them and u have to look for alternate sources which may charge u for that. so the best possible thing is to check with these drivers the linux drivers has documentation on the same page so if that helps conitnue with this card or else better buy a new dsl modem which is external.

if this has been provided by ur service provider then they might be having the drivers.

goodluck

hi there

before u buy any dsl modem, try to speak to the service provider, if u happen to be in US and in the 9 states where bellsouth is offering service, then they offer u a free adsl modem which is westell6001 which is a very good one. and that comes free if u signup for a year.

my advice is go for a isp which is also a telecom service provider as that would be very beneficial.

goodlook, revert back for feedback if required and if ur from india then u have different options too
