    Go to this site and download the ScanModem tool. It will identify the chipset of your modem which is what is really important, not the manufacturer or the model. http://www.linmodems.org/

    Once that tool identifys which modem chipset you have, go to the bottom of the page and find out if that chipset is supported. Chances are it is. Especially with RH8. Good luck!
