modem install

I seem to be unable to install a modem, in board setup I chose generic modem type, in NT is chose standard modem type, but installing the modem there are no com ports to install to.

Something simple I hope

Kind regards

Re: modem install

I had a similar problem installing an internal modem. I ended up using an external modem and the existing COM1 serial port. Of course, now that I have used the one and only serial port, I need a COM2 to connect my new UPS. Intend to install a generic parallel/serial card this weekend and see if the HW and NT4 will recognize it. Hope this helps.

Re: modem install

Thanks Clif. I seem to have missed a step in configuring the board, I have now assigned the COM port settings to the modem in the BIOS settings and it now seems to work, unfortunately the software I wanted it for has now gone out of its trial period so that's one problem solved, one created, well sort of anyway.

Thanks alot for your reply
