I am looking for help to solve the problems encounted during
my modem installation.
My computer is a IMB compatible (DX66). Modem is a v.32 14,400bps one.
The computer has two serial prots (com1 and com2 as defaulted).
A mouse occupies port 1 (with com1).
My problems are as follows:
1. How can I use com2 for the internal modem?
When I simply set Modem jumper to com2, it won't work.
2. When I set modem jumper to com3 or com4, I could run Modem
through com3 only with comm. software. The software would
not allow me set port 4 though modem jumper was set on com4.
It said port 4 not available.
(note: the 3rd com address is 2E8, should be used as com4 as
my controller card manual says.)
3. If I run modem with com3 or com4, another problem arised because
it somehow interfare the mouse function.
4. Things even turned wierd this evening after I installed a CD-ROM
driver. Now the comm. software display a message: port 3 operate
through bios. I am totally out of control of it. I can't use
Modem at all.
I hope I have presented the problem clearly with my limited compute
knowledge. Sorry to bother the net experts if the problems are too simple.
Any help will be highly appreciated.
