Hi umoh – was the modem working ok before? Are you getting any specific error messages?
I had XP and motorola SB5101 modem and my internet worked. Then I installed windows 7 and though modem seems to be ok, computer says it’s not working properly, no matter if I use USB or Ethernet connection, and I can’t access internet now. So, if I download that driver downloader, will it be able to scan for driver updates without internet? If not, can you offer me another solution?
