Cannot find a modem driver for Gateway Solo 1150 Notebook

I have a Gateway Solo 1150 Notebook that has an internal modem.  I need to re-install the driver for this modem.  I have checked the Gateway site and found out that support for this notebook has been sold to a company called MPC Corporation.  I went to their site and could not find the specified driver software.  The internal modem is a Conexant SmartMC II/WL world wide modem. It is V.90 56kflex.  Here is a link to the Solo specifications http://search.gateway.com/s/manlib/Notebooks/Solo1150/8506374/06374.htm.  I have tried googling this type of modem but got no returns.  Any information on this driver would be greatly appreciated.  This notebook is currently running Windows XP Pro.

Thanks!

Make sure you have identified the driverless chip correctly:
Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Information. Click on "components" and highlight "problem devices". Any hardware device with a driver problem will be listed here. Make a note of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will contain a Vendor number and a Device number (VEN. . . . DEV. . . .)
both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  Post the results here.

You could try going to modemdriver.com and do a search there. They have a lot of legacy driver's available. You do have to do a free registration though.

You can try this free driver utility. It will also archive all of the drivers on your system, so it will be easy to reinstall the next time.

That utility might help except without the modem I cannot hook up to the Internet.  This notebook is very old and does not have ethernet.
