Windows ME and Com ports

By wsimpson ·
I have installed a USR modema and under the diagnostics the modem is communicating with Windows ME. When I try to use it however, it always come back, even after hardboot, that something else is using the modem. How do I track its usage? Additionally, it assigned to COM1, but COM1 doesn't show under the port section of the device manager.

It sounds like you have a resource conflict. Install your modem on com2 and use IRQ3.If something else is using IRQ3 first try to change the assignment or assign the modem a different IRQ.

Thanks, butI checked the com ports, the IRQ resources and the DMA just for the heck of it. Still no dice.
