Cable Cable Modems and IRQs
Posted on 1999-01-27
I need guidance in juggling IRQs so a cable modem can be
hooked to my IBM box. All IRQs are currently in use. The
modem IRQ is an obvious choice, but it (#4) is not one the
cable company will accept. They required an unshared IRQ and
decline all help to me. I need to know the mechanics, the
pitfalls (Don't change the mouse!), etc. Must I disable the
current modem so Win98 won't find it and give it an IRQ? Must I change jumpers and bust the warranty?
I know this requires a long, involved answer. Is there a
source of information that will guide me through this? The
various Win98 texts at Barnes and Noble touch very briefly
on this. Doesn't this question come up all the time?
Appreciate your trouble . . . .
