When I install PNP modem , first be sure of its PNP mode.
and then setup BIOS ,
some guys like to disable COM2 (I don't think it is a good idea)

I often make PNP OS installed , to assign
IRQ3/IRQ4 to PNP or any other things.

Sometimes I succeeded,Sometimes I failed depends
on the motherboard.

I can not make a general conculsion about how
to setup BIOS to install PNP modem , and it is
suitable to most kind of motherboard.

Can anyone help me.

Thanx inadvance

There are problems with windows 95 and how it handles PnP.  This causes alot of problems with installations.A lot depends on if you are using windows 95 or 98.  Microsoft has a whole article on how to set up modems.  I'll go find the URL and post it below in a moment.

The URL is:

How to Install an Internal Modem in Windows 95

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q152/0/64.asp

It outlines a lot of information on how problems arise and some methods of getting around them.

One more note, disabling the COM ports in the motherboard BIOS does not always prevent windows from finding the ports and allocating PnP resources to them in device manager.  If the ports show up in the device manager, Tthe way around this is to check the box "disable in this hardware profile" for the COM ports and LPT ports you are not using.  When ports are disabled on the motherboard and don't show up in the device manager, it is still no guarantee the PnP bios is not reserving resources.
