Hi,

I have a Compaq Presario desktop PC (5WV250) that I've installed Windows 98
on. The drivers that I have tried from modem-drivers.com and
driverguide.com haven't worked. A bootable linux distro identified it as a:
'Conexant HCF 56k Data/Fax GVC Corporation Compaq Scooter'.

Any Presario 5000 owners with Win98 kind enough to let me know where I can
download a working driver for this?

Many TIA.

Try the GVC web site. The Conexant web site also has reference drivers for
tehir modem chipsets... Ben Myers

Going backwards in operating systems (the PC shipped with WinMe) is always
iffy, driver-wise. Compaq almost never supplies drivers for an OS of earlier
vintage than what shipped on the PC. If you must do it, you may need to
install a different modem.

With a few exceptions, Win ME drivers also work on Win 98... Ben Myers

Suffice it to say that in dealing with clients who have a marked distaste for
Windows ME or reselling low-end refurb P3 systems, I have generally suceeded in
"retrofitting" Windows 98SE onto all brands of hardware including HPaqs and
finding Windows 98SE drivers to cover all chipsets in a computer box.

To be true, Microsoft once again broke some of the driver APIs in the transition
from 98 to ME, but the large majority of them still work, and the drivers
likewise... Ben Myers

I mean, why look high and low for drivers, if you can afford to, just get a
new modem, it will have the drivers for your OS.

I think he means $8.00 modem, which is not too far from the prices charges by
wholesalers and computer shows. The only real problem with ANY modem is finding
the drivers for it for ones operating system. The modem you are working with
has a mainstream chipset, so drivers are available. It's simply a matter of
finding them, no different than any other piece of hardware... Ben Myers

Not $8.00 but close and a good modem. I've installed half a dozen in friends
PCs. No complaints:

There is a generic PC-Tel GVC modem driver that will work with that
modem. Basically its just a generic driver that works on any
connextant modem in any Win9x configuration.

I have a copy and I'd be happy to email it to you, because I have no
idea of the URL that I got it from. Send me an email if you need it.
