I offered to help my friend, who just got a computer with XP Home. The PC he got was first on the market in September 2004. He uses dialup; after a few minutes, the modem cuts off. We determined it may be a driver issue. So I offered to look up drivers for him. I found Driver Detective on the Internet and downloaded it and sent him a copy on CD. It will not load on his PC because it needs the .NET Framework. Downloading the .NET Framework via modem does not sound too appetizing. Does any one know of a simpler way of getting an updated modem driver for an eMachines T2862?

In another matter, on the CD there were four files; two written with XP, the other two with a burner program. Two files failed to copy because of CRC failure. Do you think this happened because two different programs were used to write the four files on the CD? The files written with XP copied fine. The other two files written with the burner program failed CRC.

I have found Driver Detective & all of those type of programs, very risky & have seen failure of comps.

"We determined it may be a driver issue"
You should see the problem in Device Manager, if there is one.

Have you tried the repair of the Local Area Connection?
Right click Local Area Connection > Repair.

If needed.
download emachines t2862 drivers

Are you sure about that model number. I couldn’t find that model listed. Go to the link below and select the country of origin and then find the correct type/ series/ model number. Then download ALL the drivers for the version of Windows you are running.

Click on the United States in the lower left to change countries.

To download a distributable version of net.frameworks, go to the link below. You need to know which version you need. There are many.

Why the heck would you need a "driver detective" program? YOU are supposed to be the driver detective!

All you needed to do was check the eMachines website. If no drivers are available because the system is too old, then open the case & get the make/model off the modem card, THEN search for drivers using the model number. Or get the model number off the main chip on the modem card, then do a search for that. There are very few 56K modem chipset manufacturers. The most common are Conexant/Rockwell, Agere/Lucent, PC-Tel.

Emachine drivers for that model

I googled the model and found it.

Just because the OP does not come back in 3 or 4 days to reply, does not mean he will not come back and reply.
