I have a game that has a multiplayer feature, but does not recognize virtual com ports.  I have an Infotel modem running on a Pentium 2 processor.  Whenever I get into the game (which is set up for dos but you have to go through windows to get to it)it does not list com 2, which is the com port that my modem is installed on.

If you are using a Winmodem you cant disable plug and play. The way you can tell is when you look on the circuit board if you see any jumpers, which are basicly black covers which are setting on 1 or 2 pins coming off of the board.

If it does have jumpers you need to consult the manual that came with the modem to find out how to set it to a COM port manually. For the case of US Robotics modems the setting information is on the back side of them.

If it is a winmodem you are out of luck. It is not in any way compatible. However if it has jumpers then it will be absolutely compatable with DOS apps.
