Finding information on ancient modems is one of the most vexing pursuits one could indulge in. I have a pile of 56k modems that I cannot find drivers for. There are thousands upon thousands of different modems combining chips from a great number of companies.
The FCC required the manufacturers to put identification information on the modems, but that was probably long after your modem was made. Really, it's a good idea to junk the modem, get a new one, and you will have the drivers on the disk that comes with it. If your time is not important to you, go to Windrivers.com and search. Tip: shut down your machine. Open the case. Touch the metal frame to remove static electricity from your body. Unplug the computer from its power source. Remove the modem. Find all the identifying information you can on the modem, including any brand name and number that looks useful, and whatever info is on the main chipset. Write it all down, and then put the modem back into the PC.
Now you have something to work with. But the odds are not good that you will have much luck with it, unless you can find an original driver disk or the modem is a Standard Modem rather than a Winmodem.
