View Full Version : Modem ID?

08-03-2004, 12:32 PM
I have a Modem that I canít seem to Identify and therefore canít find a driver.

None of the drivers on the WIN98SE disk seem to be the correct ones and generic drivers Iíve tried donít work.

So here we go, this is what it looks like, you may need a good imagination.

It is a PCI modem.

It has line out and Mic in, as well as single telephone line connection.

It has plug together plastic covers that cover ĺ of the PC Board on both sides.

The chipsets (2) are Rockwell as follows.

Rockwell 97
9913 B78417.2


Rockwell 97
9910 B77872.4

Now, thereís heaps of numbers on the board but a search on google turned up zip.

One thatís etched on is 050-518718-203 In paint we have FT33 and on a sticker 810-A49029-A30.

So there we are, any suggestions?

Is there a programme that can identify a modem without any drivers for it installed?

If you download & run Aida32 (free) it may identify this for you.

It has identified more than I ever wanted to know about practically anything for me...

Hmmmm... Should've thought a little longer about HOW you could run it without drivers...

Blame it on Mondayitis...

Thanks for that GF.

I had looked at that driver but got put off by the XP when 98se is the operating system.

I'll give it a go and let you know.

Feeding "rlvdl56dpf/sp" to Google gets some hopeful looking links. Rockwell don't make modems, of course: their chips are used by various companies. But if you start at the top, you could well get to a driver which works. :D

Dahhhhhhhh! 469 hits on google.

You know Graham the board is literally covered in numbers and I entered every one of them and never thought to enter the number on one of the chips! What a dunce! :8}

Iíll try GFís and if that doesnít work it seems I have plenty to play with. :D

That's the only string I tried. ;-) For modems, look for things like 56, 336, V90 insdie strings on chips. The 4 digit numbers like 9913 are dates (13th week of 1999)

The most useful is the FCC ID which according to US law has to be on the board. :D I once got the PDF manual for a Puretek modem from the FCC site -- part of the supporting documentation in their application for a FCC registration.
