Conexant Web site: http://www.conexant.com (It gives a site in the message but its not real useful. It says conexant but i hav a volcano modem they must be related in some way?)

give up the info on the modem, manufacturer and all info that could lead us to the appropriate driver and post a link for you to download a new version of it. Cause modems are a little old ;)
