The FCC doesn't give out any info like they used to because of "privacy" laws. It was a great resource in the past.
There are some PCTel Drivers
on that site that might work. Check out Modem Site
. It has some good info on those modems including a link to the Compaq drivers if thats what your working with. DriverGuide
has a driver that might work. Some PCTel modems are Audio Modem Risers which means they also do the work of the sound card.
I agree with phawgg in that modems are pretty cheap right now. One thing to bear in mind is that all PCTel modems are HSP (Host Signal Processor) or Software modems which means that the work the modem needs to do is carried out by the CPU which will slow this computer quite a bit. You can get a good US Robotics
Hardware modem for about $45. A hardware modem does its own signal processing letting the CPU do its own stuff.
Suggest you try either Belarc Advisor
or Everest Home Edition
to more accurately identify the modem and you will have a better shot at getting the right driver. It will also identify everything else in that computer.
Seems Conexant bought out PCTel. Go here
for some good info, drivers and a utility that may identify the modem. The utility says it will identify Conexants, not PCTels.
Hope I didn't get too long winded.
