Windows 7: 64-bit USB cable modem drivers?

64-bit USB 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? I'm just guessing.

Can you not just hook it up via the ethernet port to your PC?

And no need for a driver for it ever, just plug it in and go.

Ethernet port on the modem is not functioning or not available.

Is there another piece of hardware I can put between the modem and my computer to get this to work?
Hopefully something that works with a 64-bit OS and USB.

If the eithernet port on a modem is not functioning then the modem is worthless. You should either hit the reset button which should fix the problem or get a replacement.

I wish there was a magic reset button.

Newly installed Windows 7 64bit and no drivers provided for USB Cable Modem DPC2100. And no I can't use ethernet plug cause it's occupied by another computer.

You need a router, not a USB driver.

You cant use both the usb and ethernet hook ups on a modem at the same time.

I can! When I had Windows XP I could use them simultanous. But for Windows 7 there is no USB driver and for Windows XP was.
And no I won't buy router if my cable modem is enough but there is no driver at the moment.
