OEM 3Com Voice Winmodem isn't recognized properly
Posted on 1999-10-25
When I physically installed a PCI 3Com Voice Winmodem (OEM)
my windows 98 machine recognizes it only as a PCI
Communications Device which is how it remains under the ?
category of devices. I've tried all kinds of drivers from the
3Com site and Windrivers.com and each time I try using them
it tells me the drivers weren't meant for the specified device.
I've also tried installing it in the other PCI slots of my ABIT
motherboard and I've tried the modem when all other devices
(save my AGP Viper 550 graphics) removed and it still doesn't
work. Another approach has been to leave the device in the ?
category and simply install another device. This phantom
device will install, but isn't recognized by the comm port and
(of course) won't dial. I've heard this modem is a poor choice
but I'm now stuck with it.
