COMMUNICATION PORT NOT AVAILABLE

By ggmathew ·
I was installing widnows 98 on an old gateway PC/166 MHZ. I could see only com port 1. My modem doesn't recognize this port. How do I add more communication ports.

Good luck.

You have to go into control panel, add/remove hardware. when prompted to have windows search for hardware, choose no and select it from a list. Choose ports (COM/LPT)and accept the default manufacture and model. Finish install and reboot. You can add more ports as needed.
