I've been having problems with older dos programs opening the com port, yet still not being able to talk to my winmodem.  (Ex: Doom) Is there any way I can load my (Spark) Motorola SM56 winmodem with dos pnp drivers, if so where can I get those drivers?

Thanks,
Dan

dleslie,

The official answer is that Winmodems are not supported in DOS and are not supposed to work in the DOS environment.  However, a company called Pacific CommWare created a program called TurboCom VIP that adds DOS support to a Winmodem.  Here is the URL:
