XP wont' recognize or find my modem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Win XP with service pack 2,

    won't find my modem, sorry dont' know maker but it did come from another computer running XP.

    I need the driver called I 'something' Communications Controller (Sorry the name escapes me in frustration).

    I've found the driver online but when I click to download it to a working computer which supports a removal disc, it copies directly to the internal guts of the comp.

    And when the comp says log on and get the driver update, hello...I can't cause I cant log on because the modem has no driver.

    Plus...the comp now doesnt find the modem and I've tried everything in the trouble shooting area to see if it will communicate. And no luck

    A very frustrating loop! damn XP...really, this should be easier! Makes me wanna buy a MAC, but I suppose I'll just keep using my 4 gig win 98. It's pretty good if not slow...

    any suggestions besides trying a letterman off the roof smash?

    Thanks,

    J
