ADSL connection problems - Sparkcom+ASUS A8N-SLI

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?QW5nZWxvbWlrZTcz?=, Aug 22, 2005.

  1. I have a PC with a n ASUS A8N-SLI motherboard, Athlon 3500, and a Sparkcom
    ADSL internal modem. I have just installed XP x64, but cannot get my
    internet connection to work, hence I am unable to register the product or
    download any further 64 bit drivers for items without drivers!!

    The OS has not detected the modem and I am unsure whether I need a modem
    driver - one doesn't exist for Sparkcom!!!

    Or, to upgrade the motherboard chipset, and use this LAN connection instead
    of my ADSL modem connection?

    Help!!!

  2. Only the manufacturer can provide drivers for that modem, Microsoft does not
    develop drivers, your next best option is to use LAN Connection.

    Most here have gone the LAN route because of lack of drivers for many
    modems.

  4. You'll need to use a LAN connection to an external modem. (And this is the
    primary reason why I always recommend external, network connecyted, modems
    and/or routers for internet connectivity. No drivers are required to make it
    work, a critical requirement for those of us who must have the very latest.
