       I am able to see this installed modem under "Modems" in device manager. There it's showing that this modem was connected to COM4 port. I tried to "query modem" by clicking it on "diagnostics" tab.. But it reported an error
"The port that the modem is using is currently open by another application.Exit any application that may currently be using the port." but i can't find out what the other application that using this port..How to resolve this?

       and one more problem is i am trying to create a network connection using this modem..I entered the username and password and finished the process..No it shows a new connection under "Network Connections" in control panel.. saying that the Modem was disconnected. "Modem Removed..Unavilable device (COM1)".. But my modem was connected to COM4 but it's establishing connection connection with COM1..How can i say to establish connection using COM4..

If u need any more information..i can provide

Thanx in advance..

XP SP2 now includes BlueTooth drivers, however these often don't function the same or have as many features as the manufacturers driver.

You need to force the BT device to use the original drivers from in Device Manager

Hi snerkel,
     Thanx for ur quick reply..

uisng Windows XP drivers i was able to connect from other computer..but my computer is giving there problems..so, i think there is no problem with drivers..

1) While "Querying Modem" it's saying that the port is opened by other application..Is there any way to find which other application opened the port?

2) How can i tell while using "Create new connection(dial-up)" under Network connections use the modem connected to COM4 port as by default it's taking COM1 port..
XP SP2 does work work for certain things, but other functions don't work.

My Belkin BT worked OK connecting to a BT access point with the XP driver but would not connect with my Sat Nav (serial connection like a modem) unless I use the Belkin driver.
