Need drivers for 56K internal modem (PCI)
« on: August 18, 2009, 12:28:45 PM »
i have this problem with a WinXP PC that throws up a 'found new hardware' message each it's started. the device happens to be a 'Modem PCI Simple Communications Controller', a google search showed that it's a code for internal PCI modem. so i checked further and found that it's called 'Agere PCI Soft Modem' with the chipset labelled MSP-7850W. the problem is now finding the drivers since Agere has long been sold to Lucent (or is it vice-versa) and somehow the vendors website is now non-existent.

the normally reliable google search only points to certain drivers website where one has to install a certain driver-sleuth programs before being able to download the drivers. so i would like to ask fellow DC'ers if they happen to have the drivers or the links to this drivers, please share with me. thanks.. :)

The modem's identification string.

I'm not sure, but I think this drivers will do fine:
If they don't, please post the device's VENdor and DEVice IDs (Device Manager, Properties, Details view, Device Instance ID).
The string should look like this:
PCI\VEN_XXXX&DEV_YYYY&(some more hex here)

thanks scancode, i'll download and try the drivers. just in case, the vendor id is 11C1 and the device id is 048C. i checked them earlier at pcidatabase.com but didn't know what to make of it. :)

%AGERE3% = AGERE_PCI, PCI\VEN_11C1&DEV_048C

yes, WinXP accepted the drivers with no complaints at all.  :) maybe later i'll try some surfing on that PC.
