    I recently purchased a used Gateway E4100 computer with Windows XP from a local school system at a great price. I didn't realize when I bought it that it didn't have a modem for my dial-up internet needs. I visited my local computer store where they gave me a used one for cheap, but now I am having problems locating the modem drivers for it. It has been a real headache searching for the drivers on-line when 95% of the driver download sites require that you have internet on the computer you are getting the drivers for so that their program can scan your computer for the correct updates. I would love to do this, but since I am downloading the drivers so I can access the internet in the first place it's pretty pointless. I have installed the modem, but the device status is a "Code 10," simply the device cannot start. I get all sorts of numbers as far as the modem (model) goes. Under properties it says it is a HSP56 MR manufactured by eMachine. The number off the modem itself says it is a Dell intel 56K Data Fax Modem X2749 537epg. I need a driver that I can download onto a USB stick so that I can insert it into my computer and load it so that my modem will finally work. Please help! I am at my whits end in trying to fix this on my own.
