Hi

I have a diamond multimedia supraexpress 56i PRO DF modem, that installs and works fine under NT4 but in 2k it tries to install to com port 2 or 1 not the necessary com port 3, is there any thing I can do to switch to com3, on installation it does not offer it as one of the options

Make sure you useing the Rigth Com port that match the I/O address & IRQ address, sometime have do it the hardway by manuel changeing the Com Port it if it a NoN PnP Internal or External.
Try setup moden to Full PnP Mode if it Internal type, don't forget to change your Bios to PnP OS "Yes".

Have this modem trouble on a machine that dual boots with NT4, so I know precisely what the settings are, have uninstalled two com ports and installed a new com port at com3 which is where NT4 recognises the modem as being at, have set up com3 with MS's recommended IRQ and I/O address.  Consequently don't think it is a bios problem but will check.

When I run the diagnostic the response is to the effect of : modem is not responding due to a hardware error or may be incorrectly installed.  the modem does work : am using it now
