    have 2 pc's one with modem that works fine, the other as soon as I connect the phone line to the pc, the phone gives a continuous ring.
    Is this a driver or modem problem?

    if you are on broadband you may need to use dsl filters or check if everything is connected right

    I would think that it is highley unlikley that it will be the Modem Drivers. if this is the cable you have always used to use then it may be the Modem. You could try using the other cable from your other modem.
