Updating Modem Driver

  sutemil 18:38 21 Oct 2007

I have Conexant HCF P85 modem installed with 56K PCI Voice Modem driver version There is no update for this driver but I have located HCF PCI driver v 212.173 which is newer.
Would this be suitable upgrade ?
Do need to delete existing modem driver ?
I operate on Windows Me.

If your modem is running OK do not try to update it.

The last known driver is Feb.2002

If HCF PCI driver v 212.173 not listed for the HCF P85 modem do not install as could disable the modem

Agree with Gandalf, if its working do not update it as you'll only screw things up. Theres no advantage unless somethings wrong with your modem as it won't get any faster.
If it ain't broke don't fix it.
