    I need a driver for a AC-Link bus 56K Modem on a Gateway Brookings Motherboard. It is for a Gateway Essential 700c. The PC is listed on the WinXP HCL as "WLP 2.0 Compliant" (whatever that means). However, there are no drivers on the CD (It's XP Home). I can't check Windows Update because i can't get on the internet without a modem :(

    Windows 2000 drivers give an error and will not install. Gateway will not support XP on this comptuer and has not released drivers.

    Anyone know where i can find one?

    I'm not exactly sure if this is the right one. I went to gateway and it says this XP driver is for the 56K AC-Link Voice Modem (Brookings Motherboard).

    I downloaded it and put it on my ISP, you can get it here:

    The installation instructions are here:

    You're mailbox is full, couldn't reply to your PM. I went to Gateway and did a driver search for "modem," and it came up under XP drivers.

    Yea. I had a crapload of sent messages saved. Guess those will full the box up. I'll probably try the drivers soon, they are for a client (I work as a in-home computer tech).

    Thanks Again,

    Right on. I like it when these thread relationships end and we can still be friends.
