If the Operating System that you use doesn’t contain drivers for your modem, the modem might not function properly. After installing the modem in your system, the wizard ‘Found new hardware’ can start automatically. If your modem has a CD/DVD along with it then you might install it. The wizard may itself search for the drivers in it. If your modem lacks the hardware controller, then a driver is necessary for the modem to work.
