I can't seem to find a driver for this device; it was manufactured by Nextcom K.K. with a device # C022

Hi, I have found the solution. If you go in device manager, click on the pci simple communications controller, go in property and then go in details. You will see a code like per example PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&SUBSYS...

The VEN code means vendor and the DEV code means device: in my case the vendor is 8086 and the device is 27D8.

Once you have the two codes, go to link below. Enter the two codes and you should get the name of your

hardware. From there you can search for a driver download for your hardware.

Thanks Chewy...but I've already been there, and all I could find was 14B1 Vendor is NextCom K.K. and I couldn't locate a website for them that is not in Japanese; second the device # C022 is not listed...

Well you need to inventory your device manager and try to find if we are looking for a pci modem, a lan controller(ethernet)?

Its a Dell Inspiron 531 with Windows Vista Home Premium, and as far as I can tell, the PCI Simple Communications Controller is the only device not functioning properly, shows an exclamation point for this device because it has no driver installed at all...

Has anyone added a pci card? Like a modem?

Does the ethernet work(wired network/internet)?

I found a nvidia network driver?

Did the computer come with a telephone modem?

In the back there will be a telephone jack in a card where the pci slot is.

You have 2 or 3 choices, you can disable the problem device in device manager since you probably will never use the modem or you can go here and put in your service tag and look for the modem driver

I found this for the Dell™ Inspiron™ 531

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/...p;fileid=241814

but the driver identifies it as a

%HSFModemRSL% = ModemRSL, PCI\VEN_14F1&DEV_2F20&SUBSYS_200F14F1
