Hey there, I have recently upgraded to Windows XP, my modem is not compatible with this version. Is there anywhere online to download a driver?

Hi Mitch Pelley!

What do you mean by it's 'not compatible'? Motorola modems don't need any drivers. And I'm assuming that this modem is what you got from your cable/dsl provider to let you connect to the internet.

Motorola upset a lot of people in late 2001 when it came to their modems. They pulled all drivers from their website four months early.

The company has never officially supported Windows XP with their older modems, in lieu of the fact they'd been out of the business for the best part of three years.

In some cases Windows 2000 drivers might work for your modem.
In the long run, it might be easier just to buy a new modem.
