can anybody help.

I had a modem (bt voyager 105) that automatically set up with the AOL broadband instillation. I have now given modem to my brother who uses another service provider. How can i configure this modem without using the AOl broadband set up disk ?I can't find the driver software anywhere on the net.

And theres this from another forum.

I have had the exact same problem, the 'beepin' modem just wont connect to the internet. After many phone calls to the so called 'tech support', who just tell you to do random stuff just for them to make them sound good but they are actually crap, i finally solved to the problem MYSELF. For all those having difficulties with the voyager 105 listen up. Uninstall both the voyager 105 driver and then AOL 9.0. Once restarted install the voyager 105 modem only. To do this instert the disk then:
Start --> my computer --> right click on AOL CD --> Drivers --> voyager 105 then setup.
This will only install the driver and not AOL 9.0. Do not install AOL 9.0, that mucks up the internet. I connect through broadband connection in which i made my self. to do this go to:
start --> control panel --> network and internet --> internet connections --> connections --> add --> then connect via broadband --> follow the steps --> in the user name and password just put your AOL email address and AOL passowrd.

And you could always try this.

If the modem has an ethernet connection and your brother has an ethernet port on his PC (ie a network card) your brother should connect it up that way (with a CAT5 network cable) rather than using USB. That way, you don't even need to install the modem driver either, as the driver is only required for USB.

Quite apart from that, USB was never intended for networking, it's just used because it makes the hardware cheaper to make. Ethernet WAS intended for networking. One less driver on your PC means one less chance of a driver conflict and less messing about installing it.
