Hi Everyone:

        I almost have everything ironed out on an HP Pavilion 520w pc.  However, it has an independed PCI modem card which needs Windows 98 Second Edition Drivers.  As identified by Everest Home Edition, the modem is a Lucent WinModem.  

        Any help on locating the drivers for this modem will greatly be appreciated.  I look forward to hearing from everyone regarding this question.

       Thank you

       George

George ... hopefully one of the above drivers will work;  but there are MANY versions of Lucent WinModems, as you can see here:  http://www.modem-drivers.com/companies/609.htm

According to the specifications for your Pavilion [http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07046&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&encodeUrl=true&product=71036&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN&printable=no#N580], it uses a Cheetah 2 V.90 modem.   In a brief search, I could only find XP drivers for this ==> hopefully one of the generic drivers from agere (that x86fix linked to above) will work.

If not ... and if you continue to have difficulty finding a driver, I'd just toss the modem and buy a new one --> they're so inexpensive these days it's not worth the hassle ... and a new one will come with a driver CD  :-)  [http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16825180006]

Hi

        The only info for this modem displayed by Everest Home Edition is Lucent WinModem.  I will go ahead and try the generic driver given within the link first and see what happens.

        Thanks again.  I will be back in touch on this one.

Been down this road before.

Like gary said, there are a bunch of different versions of this thing.

If the generic driver doesn't work, pull the modem and look to see which chip is on it, and try to match a driver that way.

Hi Everyone:

       The generic driver for the modem worked perfectly!  Thanks so much for this resourceful link.  And, thanks so much everyone else for the followup suggestions just in case the generic driver would not work.  In any case, it worked out fine this time.

        Thanks again.
