Modem Install Problem and Slow
Posted on 2002-06-08
Let me set up the senario. Dell computer second hand 800Mhz. When I got it it had Win NT and everything worked fine. In this case the modem.(USR 56k)
My ISP software was not NT compatible so I erased and installed Win 98. I was running a data feed software that went to external Com 1 (note Dell only had 1 Ext serial port).
Here is Problem #1:
When I install the modem with nothing else in the system but video card, it keeps going to installing at Com 5. I want it at Com 2 IRQ 3.
Problem # 2:
When installed it does work , but slow at about 21k.
Can I get this thing to Com 2 and run at least at 40k?
