modem & Win XP

  loc 20:06 22 Jul 2005

Have Rockwell modem MDP3858V-WE, PCI slot, Just installed WIN XP HOME. Cannot connect to Internet.
Have checked for drivers, but Aztech no longer offer support for this modem.
What I have noticed is The "HFCMODEM, MDP3858 PCI modem enumerator" in win xp is missing from the DEVICE list. I am at the moment switching between XP & Win98se in order to access the Internet.
Modem works fine with WIN98SE. Have installed & un installed both modem & software in win XP.
Is it a new modem for XP!

don't install the modem in xp, go to device manager/modem/properties/update drivers, let xp look for drivers.

I hope I`m not telling `Grandma how to suck eggs` but I`d also suggest that you check that the modem is seated fully and properly
