2 Modems ,different COM
Posted on 2000-05-08
After unsuccesfully trying to instal an external Modem I re-installed my 'Rockwell 56K Data Fax PCI' modem. However on the next re-boot Windows went through its "Detected New Hardware" routine and I ended up with the same Modem on Com 2 and Com 5. The one on Com 5 is working perfectly, however whenever I try to check the Modems with Norton Utilities my computer crashes while it is trying to find the Modem.After tearing my hair out for the last week trying to get a Modem to work I am hesitant to start deleting Modems etc.Is it safe to leave my set-up as it is, as Internet Explorer seems quite happy to use the Modem on Com 5.
Computer- IBM with AMD-k6-2 450Mhz,Win98SE.
