Re: force install of driver on Vista

cable modem-->>router-->>computer

The cable modem should be the edge device. connect the WAN port of the router
via Ethernet to the cable model. connect the Computer via Ethernet to one of the
LAN ports on the router.

The Ethernet connection is being used by the Broadband VOIP/wireless router

I am going to try installing the Motorola SB4200 USB modem from
When installing it from the Vista prompt to update the unknown driver, I
an error saying that is is unsupported
I tried installing it as a legacy driver but get an error that the inf is
not supported
The motorola web site says to install it anyway, but that fails.
I copied the *.sys files to c:\windows\system32
Is there a way to force the installation of the files?
How can I modify the inf file to make Vista sp2 accept it?
