Where can I get my modem drivers
and INIT Strings?


Sometimes you may need to update the drivers or settings for your computer's modem. Drivers are the software that allows your operating system to communicate with your modem. BasicISP cannot typically walk you through this. We provide this resource to you for your own reference.
