Perhaps clarify... What actual model is this modem, and does it have several (4 usually) network points as well as the "phone line/dsl input? Also how "old" is it?

Or is this simply a modem - a phone-line/dsl input and a single cta5/ethernet output?

You don't need drivers. You just need to know the default ip address and logon name/password so you can logon to it and set it up.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

If you can/will post those numbers here - one of which maybe actual model number, and the possibly a serial number - it may help resolve your problem. With the correct model number a manual may be found...

As Wanderer has already advised, you don' t (normally - my inclusion) need to install drivers. Simply connect the modem to your incoming isp (broadband service), power up, and connect to your computer. If you wish to connect more than one device via ethernet cables then you need a router which will connect to the modem; otherwise they will have to use wifi.

To set up wifi you go the modem's setup page via an address you type into your browser. That address resembles something like this:

Those numbers (the last two) differ depending on make of router.

Once we have the model number of your router pholks here can hopefully point you to the relevant pages in that manual to set up wifi.

You will need to know your user-name and password for your account with your isp - if ithe router is not one provided by your isp. Uesful to know that anyway....
