Hmmm...actually I don't think you need a driver for the modem...it's a separate device that connects via your network card.  There should be an RJ-45 connection that is on the clearwire modem, and you need a cable that runs from the connector to your Ethernet NIC on your computer.

From what im finding the clearwire modem is a wireless modem ( acts the same as dsl and cable modems), as irwinpks suggested if you plug it in via a network cable (rj-45) no driver is needed, a network cable is also the suggested way to connect a dsl and cable modem to the system or router. If your using a usb connection between the computer and modem then you will need to install the software (software includes the needed driver) that came with the modem if it didnt come with any software or the disk has been lost then you would need to contact your ISP if they provided the modem, if you bought then manufacture of the modem will have the software.
