This modem is supported by Win98, the driver can be found below, download and unzip if neccassry, then when windows is looking for the driver foece it to browse wherever you have saved it to as the pc will probably be looking in the wrong place.

Nearly all USB modems have storage with a setup and drivers. The box it came with would state what operating system it is compatible with. If Windows 98 is not listed, it does not exist.
Development on the Windows 98 platform has stopped world wide because it is a version of DOS (unsafe, drive space and memory limitations) and no longer supported by Microsoft. Todays software configurations are saved in the registry, Windows 98 and DOS are located in various INI type files.
My suggestion? Run Windows 7 and download the free Microsoft Virtual PC package, install Windows 98 in a VM and it can use the internet shared by the host Windows 7 system.
I would look for the recovery cd's and start fresh.You coold try a earlier version of media player-uninstall the one first from add and remove programs.Try putting your modem into a another empty slot.Usually windows will find the modem and install the driver for you.
Have the driver disk handy and let the computer re-detect the modem. If it doesn't find it, remove the modem from the slot it's in and insert into another slot. the re-detect if it doesn't see it on boot up. It the computer still doesn't fing the modem, you may have a bad modem.
