COM3 & COM4 seem ok but don't work
Posted on 1997-08-02
I have added a new COM3 and COM4 to my computer, and
configured them accordingly, except that I put COM3 on
a seperate interrupt (IRQ9).
I have tested it by moving my modem to the COM3 port, and when I poll for 'more info...' it works, but dialing out,
it tells me that it could not successfully connect with the
modem (the real end use if for a digital camera, and it also
thinks there are problems with the COM port)
The Device Manager says everything is OK, and I am running a
166MMX, 430TX, Adaptec SCSI, Matrox Mystique, SB AWE 64 based system. The only thing is that looking at the system
resources by IRQ or mem address, I find there is this little
serial port icon with an 'i' in it. Don't know what that is, but it differs from COM1 & 2 already there.
