Modem's drivers or motherboard drivers?
I dont even know what compeny makes the modem (globeSpan or something), but the drivers I have on CD are XP drivers.

hub

is the modem connected to the usb port on the motherboard or to a usb hub.
If its connected to a hub try swapping it and connecting it straight to the computer , The modem needs too much power to work correctly from a hub.
