Cisco DPC/EPC2100 Cable Modem Drivers

I'm looking for a 64-bit USB Cable Modem driver that works with Vista or Windows 7.

This is my modem:

Cisco DPC/EPC2100 Cable Modem - Support - Cable Modems - Consumer - Cisco

However, none of these drivers seem to work with 64-bit.

I was wondering if there are no drivers available for this specific modem, is there a generic

64-bit USB Cable Modem available that can be used as a replacement? If so, where?

And if I'm happen to be stuck with a 64-bit OS and this modem, is there any other solution

to workaround this problem? Would it be possible to hook up a router so Windows wouldn't

see my cable modem?

Cannot Connect Via Cable Modem
New computer - Dell Inspiron 15R laptop. Windows-7 home premium 64-bit. Trying to access internet. 7 gives connection option of Broadband where ISP requires ID and Password. However, my ISP does not require this info to log on....its just "plug-n-play" I have run every test and diagnostic that I can find and the only prob I can find is something to do with the DNS, but have no way to fix the problem. The connection is Cable Modem, via LAN wire. One of the diagnostics recognizes my ISP, but still won't let me connect.

Typical For A Cable Modem To Be Able To Handle A FAX Or Not?
I rarely need to send/receive a FAX, but I would like to know how before I need to. In the past, I had a dialup FAX modem, but now I'm on cable, and I never thought about FAXing until just now. My printer also has a FAX function, but the only driver available for it on Windows 7 is the one that Windows 7/Windows Update installs.In the Windows FAX/Scan program, the scanner works perfectly, but When I try to creat a new FAX, it says that I need a FAX modem. I have no idea of whether my cable modem is capable of that or not, but when I select to send a FAX, a window appears stating that I need a fax modem or server, but when I select to use a local modem, an error appears saying that I need to contact the administrator (me). From the interface, the only thing that appears to be for setting this up is the Tools>Options menu, but when I click on that, nothing happens.The first question is whether it is typical for a cable modem to be able to handle a FAX or not?

Device Driver Software Was Not Successfully Installed For Cable Modem
When trying to install my USB cable modem (Scientific Atlanta DPC2100R2), I'm always getting a popup message that says "Device Driver Software was not Successfully Installed." I don't even get a "Found New Hardware" message beforehand. I just switched over to Windows 7 Professional 64-bit from Windows XP today, and the modem was working fine earlier (when I was using XP).

When I put the Setup disk that came with my modem, AutoPlay will play it, but I can't set up anything that way. If I go through Device Manager to try and update the driver, I get a message along the lines of "Windows could not find updates." I even get this message when I manually direct it to my D: drive where the disk is.

I've even tried uninstalling the driver from Device Manager, unplugging the USB from my PC, restarting it, and then plugging the USB back in, but I still get the same error.

It really shouldn't be the modem, as it was working fine earlier and I am even using it right now as I type this on my other PC (that runs Windows XP) and it's working fine. Would anyone happen to know how to remedy this?

Access A Cable Modem Via Wireless Access Point?
This question may not be what you think it is. I am trying to fix an intermittent issue in my home environment. The issue is I am having to use wireless. Our Xfinity Cable/WAP modem sits on the top floor of our house. I am located in the basement. The wireless signal I get most of the time is very good, and by very good i mean at least 15+ mb/s on [URL]

I am taking the Cisco Network Academy classes and am familiar with network terminology and concepts. However, what I'm trying to do is take a router/WAP (using it downstairs where I'm located) and configure it to access our xfinity modem upstairs, so that I can plug in to it downstairs using a RJ-45.

Let me know what yall think. By the way the router/wap i would be using is a netgear model unknown at this moment but could easily find out.

Novatel Expedite EV-DO Modem Drivers
I have a Sony VAIO laptop VGN-SZ670N/C which has an integrated sprint aircard. Sony offers drivers for windows XP and Vista but either driver does not work with Windows 7.

Apparently the device is a Novatel Expedite EV-DO Modem and Novatel's website explains that OEMs will offer support for this product otherwise we will escalate it to the appropriate group.

Novatel Wireless Expedite® modules

does any one have any suggestions as to how I can get drivers and an application to get this modem to work in Windows 7?

No Drivers With Internet Cable?
When I was in Lebanon I gave it to a guy at a store who formatted the whole computer and added the software/programs I requested, but there was one thing he didn't do or forgot or something went wrong..I can't connect to the internet through internet cable, which means I don't have the drivers for this thing I guess. For some reason it didn't install on my Packard bell computer. I have had similar problems before with other computers, though the sound was my issue and back then I used to have Everest to discover what was missing. This time I have windows 7 and I doubt the Everest-version I had works and honestly I don't know what to do..I have Wifi internet to use the net, but I want the ability to use the network cable where the internet is 100/100 mb.

Drivers For Windows 7 64bit For Using Cell Phone As Modem?
I just installed Windows 7 64bit. I use a Samsung Rant m540 Cell Phone for my internet connection. I can't get high speed on my road so its a lot better than dial up. Any way I've used it for a few years and now I cant seem to get it installed. It works fine on other comps and I had a driver for win xp 64bit that works. I got it installed on the windows 7 and it shows up as the modem and says its working properly but it wont respond when I try to query the modem or connect to the internet. I am pretty sure I just need a driver for the windows 7 for the phone as modem. But Sprint does not have a driver or program which supports it and neither does Samsung which created the phone. I googled for at least 5 hours with no success ive tried a few differnt drivers and no luck.

[DRIVERS] USB CDMA Modem Not Found For Windows 7 (x64)?
I had been using internet with the help of USB CDMA Modem whose image have been attached below, in my PC with Windows XP SP3 (x32) previously. I don't actually remember the name of the manufacturer's; may be its 1X CDMA Modem! Now I purchased a Dell Laptop with x64 core i5 processor and now the software provided with the modem (in its driver CD) isn't compatible with my Windows 7 Home Premium. So I can't use internet in my new laptop...and I don't want to continue using internet in my old PC which has very inferior configuration! In fact even the dialler software provided in the same CD was not installed unless I disabled my anti-virus i.e. Microsoft Security Essentials!

DELL Laptop M65 Cable Cable Unplugged
I have Windows 7 Pro (RTM) installed on a DELL Precision M65 laptop.

My LAN interface reports "Cable unplugged" although the cable is inserted and working.

I have no network connection through this interface.

the onboard NIC is a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit adapter and the driver reports it is working correctly.

If i try to install the latest driver from Broadcom, Windows says I already have the latest driver installed!

Any Suggestions?

Audio Crackling In Game (DPC Latency)?
Recently the sound from my speakers has started to crackle when I am in a game and also when a UAC window pops up. I have used DPC Latency Checker and seen that when the audio crackles, the latency is very high. This screenshot shows the results of a UAC window popping up and being closed at the point when the bars are red.I was hoping it would resolve when I re-installed windows 7 and updated my drivers but the crackling still persists. By checking DPC latency when some devices were disabled in Device Manager one by one, I noticed that without my graphics card (nVidia GeForce GTS 250 512MB) driver installed, the audio crackling and latency was gone.

High DPC/IR Cpu From Network Usage?
I have noticed when Iam downloading at full speed of 1.8MB/s on Wifi or LAN there is high DPC/IR (Deferred Procedure Calls and Interrupt Requests) CPU usage - and when transferring files in or out to USB hdd.. i sometimes get pops & clicks in audio too - the CPU is a Turion 1.8Ghz x2 with 1Mb L2 cache and 2Gb of ram, DPC/IR can only be seen using Resource Monitor in windows 7 (type 'resource monitor' into startsearch) or using Process Explorer software, I dont know much about DPC/IR but as far as Im aware it handles errors or something like that and I was told it should never even go beyond 1% cpu usage - its more noticeable on laptops as these have CPUs that arent as powerfull as desktops and have wifi, it seems to be worse with wifi. it causes latency problems in windows too and things like audio playback get pops & clicks and windows & apps become sluggish.

What brought it too my attention was the CPU fan on my laptop was on all the time and windows seemed to be sluggish when I was downloading even though uTorrent was just using 3-5% CPU, I noticed the total at bottom of Task Manager seemed to be more than what would tally up in the window, it was when i used resource monitor that I seen it.

WiFi @ 1.8MB/s = 10-15% DPC/IR cpu usage
LAN @ 1.8MB/s = 5% DPC/IR cpu usage

Copying Files to USB HDD = 15% DPC/IR cpu usage (this test was odd as it was some time ago i done this one, but I remember it was either IN or OUT that had the increase, probably IN (and OUT was <1%) , I tried SDcard too and got varying results)ive even seen it max at 40% when downloading on wifi and copying a file in/out too usb hard-drive at the same time...

Network Usage Causes High DPC Latency
After about 24 hours of booting my computer, I have seen my DPC Latency spike tremendously. At first, I thought this was an issue with my network card (since disabling it would drop DPC Latency), so I bought a new card. The problem didn't go away, so I realized it was something else. High DPC Latency is a problem since it causes audio and video lag.

As I troubleshooted the issue, I have realized the spikes were caused from network activity. For example, when I am seeding [not necessarily uploading] many torrents or am loading a website, it shoots up.

Does anyone know what may cause this and how I could prevent it?

DPC Latency Spikes Green Colored
I downloaded the DPC Latency checker and I've been getting a lot of spikes. When I open my laptop and start the checker, it's all green; but as soon as I open Chrome or Firefox it starts to spike. It's spiking as I'm typing this. It's reached 65,795. I've disabled devices to try and find the cause but I can't figure it out.

DPC Latency & Sound Dropouts
Recently I upgraded my computer hardware to a new motherboard, graphics card and processor. I moved my old hard disks (from my old hardware) into this new computer, turned it on and it started right up, I just had to re-validate Windows 7, which went without a hitch.Yesterday, I bought a new headset and started using it with my PC (before I was using desktop speakers), however, when I turned on some music, I was hearing a lot of stuttering/static while it was playing. I had this problem before, but it usually only happened when there was a program running that was taxing the CPU, and that isn't an issue now.I read around for a while last night about the issue, and it turns out that it's something called "DPC Latency", so I downloaded all the tools and tried to troubleshoot it for a few hours before I went to bed with no luck.So far I've tried:

-disabling HPET in bios & switching it to 64 bit mode (it was on 32 previously)
-turning off Powermizer on the Nvidia card
-disabling all USB ports one by one
-disabling all audio and network drivers
-changing the power settings for the CPU and HDD (tried this [...] -dipm.html
-updated all my drivers except by BIOS so far (I haven't tried that because it seems kind of risky, but I suppose I would do it as a last resort)

Another issue I was having was with my processor making this high pitched whistling noise, but when I turn off "disable processor idle" in the Windows power management area, it stops making noise. The weird thing to me is, it changes my dpclat.exe from full red bars to this for about 1-3 minutes (but after a few minutes it just goes back to full red bars, 28000μs):Before I went to bed last night, I turned on a 2 hour audio track and set it to loop with LatencyMon running. You can see in the screenshot below that the main culprits are:


I've looked around on how to fix these individually, but I can't come up with anything at all. If I purchase a PCI sound card, would it fix these issues? I would prefer to fix it without having to do that, but if that's the only way to fix it for sure I can do it.

Unable To Find Sound/Modem Drivers After Windows 7 Upgrade/Gateway MX6421?
After an upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista 32 (all drivers, modem, audio, etc. found on Gateway support windows vista 86/64)to Windows Business N 64 I cannot find certain drivers that are compatible with Win 7. I have tried the win vista 64 drivers with no luck. I have searched, for two days, for drivers AC '97 2.3 Compliant Audio (Conexant Audio from Gateway website), and the PCI Modem (Conexant7.22.0.0 1.4 MB 08/03/2010) do not work. I searched the Conexant website for drivers, again no luck.Other than that, after a HDD upgrade, 2GB memory upgrade this old machine, supprising, it runs very good.

Mouse Movement Skyrockets CPU Utilization (DPC Issue)
Okay, This issue has followed me through numerous windows 7 installs.

What happens is that I play certain games (so far only Borderlands and Mass Effect 2 set it off) for anywhere between an hour and two hours. Out of nowhere I start to get lag when I move my mouse. My sound crackles every time I move my mouse and playing the game becomes impossible. It is not an issue of overheating because I play many other games and monitor my temperatures and these games are nothing special in terms of heat. Also - I know it is my mouse causing the lag because I can look at complex things and strafe back and forth (obviously requiring things to be redrawn) and I receive ZERO LAG. But if I move my mouse in a tiny circle it causes massive lag.

If I exit the game once this has occurred it will continue to act this way until I restart my computer. If I open task manager and sort by processes it shows 30-40% utilization when moving my mouse but no processes are to blame. If I look at my cores in task manager my first core gets almost maxed every time I move my mouse. If I stop moving my mouse (or scrolling) it immediately drops back down to 0% and will shoot back up the second I move the mouse again.

I ran Process Explorer and it appears "DPCs" or Deferred Procedure Calls are to blame as they appear on the list and match the CPU usage EXACTLY. It is obviously a specific driver that is causing this overload and there are guides I've tried to follow online to dump the contents of my DPC to see which specific drivers are eating resources but I can't seem to get any of them to work with windows 7 x64. I would use DPC latency viewer and try disabling my USB because my mouse is USB to see if it fixes the issue but I would have no way of re-enabling it at that point.

and yes I've used DPC Latency viewer and it maxes out every time I move the mouse and claims a driver is responsible but this is not a program that can tell me WHICH driver.

I really need help to capture the contents of my DPC.

File Copy PCToUSB Triggers DPC's And Interupts To100%
System Runs like a champ, no issues what so ever, Can Play games all night, watch movies on here whatever Except.......I copy over a File to a USB Drive, Doesn't matter what size, doesn't matter what slot, mfg, Hard Drive, Thumb Drive Dose not matter, DPC's and Interrupts Climb to 50% each and peg both my Cores to 100% usage and im at a crawl. Reboot and im Fine, however the file that im trying to copy over fails, and give me the message of

Could not Find This Item

This is no longer Located in G: To Transfer . Verify The Items location and Try Again.

I have attached a few Screen Shots.

I'm At a loss, Microsoft has a hot fix for X86 but doesn't say anything about X64 or whats causing the USB Issue.

No one has been able to help me with the 100% usage issue.....

I have gone as far as Formatting and starting over from Scratch with nothing installed except the Drivers.

ANYONE !!! I'm at a loss here, i have tried numerous things and nothing is working..

Higher CPU Usage Due To Deferred Procedure Calls (DPC)
Running Windows 7 64-bit and just downloaded the lastest updates from Microsoft last night. Now my CPU is sitting at 20% due to Deferred Procedure Calls and Interupt Service Providers running constantly according to the resource monitor. What could cause this issue? Could it be a driver that downloaded from MS? I believe the fix for this would be to just restore back to before the install but I have a question about restore points. When I open up the restore point menu and it shows all the dates, do I pick the date of the MS update or one day earlier?
