    Welcome to the forums!

    Most hardware drivers are already included in the Linux kernel. In those cases where they aren't, you can sometimes find drivers on the component manufacturer's website if they provide any drivers for Linux. Otherwise, you'll have to search for one that someone else has written, or write your own.

    If your modem happens to be a winmodem, there's a chance that it won't work with Linux. Look here for more information on winmodems under Linux:

    linmodems.org

    In that case, you might need to purchase an external modem that will work under Linux.

    Thank you for your reply!
    I have already searched the manufacture website and I found all Windows Versions Drivers, but none for linux

    And I found nothing while searching online,
    So I thought that my only choice is the external modem,
    thanks for reply and advice
