Modem de-activation

I have an Aztech Labs "Sound III Sound/Video/Game/Modem Controller and need to disable the modem section so I may upgrade my modem speed.

This card is in an NEC Ready 9716 200 MHz Pentium Computer
Take a look at the card, and look for small "jumpers" connecting pins.
There may be a jumper-setting to disable the modem.

If not, then just install the new modem as COM4/IRQ3
(if your current modem is COM2/IRQ3), and tell your software
to communicate via COM4, rather than via COM2.


This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.

This is the Community Support link, if help is needed, along with the link to All Topics which reflects many TAs recently added.  Also in the Community Support link is a question on how experts can help, if they wish, on the cleaning of old and abandoned questions.
