View Full Version : Modem

08-10-2002, 01:07 PM
I have just had to reinsert my internal modem card (Rockwell HCF 56K Speakerphone PCI) and my system is now detecting as new hardware a "Wave Device for voice modem". I do not seem to have any drivers for this device on the CD-ROM that came with the modem and Rockwell don't seem to be around any more, so what is this new device and where might I look for drivers if it is necessary?

What Windows version do you have, martin? Windows should have a driver installed for it already and should offer to install the default driver for it (unless your computer is a really old one :))

This is usually found in the same directory as the other driver files for the modem, have you tried pointing windows there?

point it to your sound card drivers.

I've got one of them. Look on the CD for Wavrss2.inf

Rockwell was bought out by Conexant - there are drivers on the Conexant website.

I have checked my sound card CD-ROM, Modem CD-ROM and Win 98 SE disc for this file without success. What am I missing?

I'm running Win 98 SE on a PII-333 system. Unfortunately windows can't seem to find a driver anywhere!

No joy there I'm afraid.

try going to Conexant and searching that site for the driver.

The driver(s) are most probably hiding on the modem CDROM somewhere. Sometimes the location can be a bit obsure on these CDs and you have to specify exactly the directory to go to.

The alternative is the Internet.;-) From "rockwell 56k HCF speakerphone driver" google.co.nz gave quite a few matches. Excluding those people asking, these links on the first page of resulyts look worth following: "56k Data page", "DRIVER DOWNLOAD", Zoltrix Rockwell ...".

you shouldn't need to look on the net or even on a cd rom as its still on the pc. just a matter of showing windows where it is (which can be tough if you don't know what it is called)

Well, one of those links from google gives a list of the file names ...

Sorry but which CD? I couldn't find it on the Modem software CD using Explorer (showing all files).

It might be quickest to go to the Internet :D

Some winmodems can be a [CENSORED] to install at the best of times.

Browse your CD (again) for a folder with the same model number as the modem. Inside the folder there will either be an executable to run on a *.ini file that you can right click on to install.

If you are not using (or if the modem doesn't support) voice features, then don't worry about it. It doesn't affect the data side of things.

From experience and frustration I know that only win ME and above contain the necessary drivers. You'll have to check the web or your retailer
