NT and PCI

By jlivingston ·
Does anyone know of a utility to help me to set up a PCI modem card on my NT box? I know there are utilities that will tell me the port number so I don't have to spend an entire afternoon guessing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Intels ISA configuration utility ICU for short, will give you the information you need. You can obtain it from intel's Web site. It is an old DOS basesd utility that you run on a DOS formated disk. It tells you all of the IRQ's that your cards are using including your PCI cards. In retrospect, didn't NT Detect the CARD when you go into control panel, modems, add?

Look for shareware called Modem Doctor. You can also use NT diagnostic to look for all your free resources. As mentioned you should try control panel, modem and see if NT detects the modem.

Better still is to use the drivers that came with the modem. If you don't have these you can download at places like drivers.com and also the manufacturer web site - which may have the latest upgrades to the drivers.

There is no particular difference in setting up any type of modem. In NT - since it's not plug and play it is harder as you need the drivers and you need to know more about the modem then in Windows 98.

Sometimes generic drivers like Hayes compatible drivers may work.

Putting the modem in a box with windows 98 will give you a lot of answers but involves more work - use as last resort.

Good luck.

If it is a LT WinModem, the drivers can be found at 56k.com, if it is one of the rockwell based cards, you may or may not be able to use it with NT. They made a number of different chipsets and so you may have trouble loading the drivers. A pci modem is generally a winmodem, so you wouldn't use the modem applet in control panel to install it, it shoul have come with an installer file to set it up. The port will likely be something like com5, as it is a fiction of software, just a redirector to the proper irq.

You could use winmsd to get available resources. IRQ, I/O, DMA resources that are in use are listed.

Since I have had few problems setting up PCI modems with NT4 [maybe I've been lucky] the following thought occures: Most PCI modems are 'WINMODEMS' and don't work with NT. If you are having problems, check the possiblity that you have one of these.
