Since you've found another way to access the web, I'd suggest starting here:
http://www.linmodems.org/

Before going there, however, try to get a more specific identification of your 
modem -- particularly the model number and chipset. You'll find that "Lucent 
winmodem" is about as descriptive as "Ford automobile".

And please do not post in HTML -- plain text is much preferred here.

Good luck,
