Win2k & internal modem
Posted on 2000-03-04
I've been trying for many, many hours to get my modem to work with win2k, but it will not allow me to install the com port that it requires.
I have tried disabling the onboard com ports via the bios but that does not seem to have made any difference. In the device manager the new com port will always come up with an error, but there are no conflicts and the troubleshooter is of little help.
I do not know what my modem is as it came with the whole system. It has Rockwell chips on it and I think it is probably an AOpen modem, though I can't work out which one, all the ones I have found so far with these particular chips seem to have groups of jumpers on them, where as mine has one jumper(dunno which one though). There appears to be no way of setting anything on the modem card itself. I have tried downloading the drivers for the AOpen FM56 ITU but really the problem is before I even get as far as installing the modem as I don't even get the com port as an option in the modem installer.
any advice is most appreciated.
