If you can not copy the driver from Windows,

Google: Conexant c11252-11 
Find a site to download the driver.
There are several free sites where you can do this.
(You might have to sign up for a free account)

Then, using ndiswrapper, insert the file when promted.

Hope this helps!

Thunderheights The op is refering to a dialup modem. Ndiswrapper is for wireless
cards.

Try linuxant for a driver that may work. They have a free driver to test the modem.
