First, check yoour computer for virus, spyware, malware, etc. Then, go to www.hp.com and go to support, drivers and downloads and download it. If your computer does not connect to the internet, use a friends computer or go to the library and download the drivers on to a flash disk. Have fun!

How to install huawei ETS1001 (FWT) modem driver for windows 7 OS


Windows 7 should manually install the drivers for the modem. However, modems usually don't require drivers unless they're being plugged in with a usb cable. If possible, I would use the ethernet connection as it's much faster than the usb connection. If that's not possible, search on the manufacturer's website to find the driver you require. I did some searching myself and couldn't find anything specifically relating to Windows 7, but usually a Windows Vista driver will work.

I lost the disk for the RCA DCM425 digital cable modem the cable company gave me. how can i get the modem to work on my new computer?


Hello Friend,
If you didn't change anything in modem side, that means the modem is still connected to internet. in this case you can connect the modem to your computer via the Ethernet cable. with this cable you will not need to install anything on your computer, just plug the Ethernet cable to the RJ45 port and start browsing internet.
The only case when you will need the drivers is when you want to connect the modem to your PC via USB cable.
Here is a link where you can find everything about your modem: quick guide, user manual, usb drivers ...
Best Regards,

OK. First of all you do not need a special or seperate driver for the Ethernet port. Its factory loaded with your OS.

All you need to do is plug the Ethernet cable into the LAN port on your HP Desktop and then into the LAN port (not the WAN port) of your cable modem.

The second thing is if its only a cable modem, then I suggest you proceed with caution as there is NO built-in firewall on a cable modem. Yes you will get on the net, but you are likely to be attacked with virus the moment you connect. I suggest you check very carefully whether the cable modem (if that's what it is) does/does not have a firewall as you would be very unwise connecting up like that.

Next, forget USB connection to the router/cable modem. That technolgy we've moved on from.. Your Vista shodul be 'plug n play' adn should configure the router for you. obviously that bit isn't so slick on yours.

Let me know how you get on..

Install


If the modem is already registered to your ISP then you can plug the modem to your computer using an Ethernet cable (CAT5) to your computer's ethernet port and to the modem's port as well.

If you want to use the USB cable then you need to install the drivers for it. You may go to motorola website and type in the model number of your modem to get and download the drivers.

Though, I suggest that you use the Ethernet connection instead.

The ADSL, Ethernet, and USB ports are located at the back of a Linksys modem. These ports are where the phone cable and computer will be connected. The ADSL Line should be connected to the ADSL port and the computer either be connected to Ethernet or the USB port., If u r using a ethernet cable no need to run the setup cd just connect the ethernet cable and contact ur isp..
do not worry about ur sagem modem, let it be inside.. just connect ethernet cables alone..

To setup a Linksys ADSL Modem with usb cable you need to perform two steps:
