Re: PnP modem woes continue, IRQ never fires for modem

A tech-support person at Cybermax Computer, which
built my system, just told me that all of their 56K modems
are "Windows-based".  We walked through a simple
AT command under DOS, and COM1 (ie, 0x3f8) emitted
an I/O error. 

It appears my modem is one of the dreaded 'Win modems'.

Interesting.  Computer Peripherals made my modem.
Maybe they make 'Win modems' based on the Lucent
chipset.  At least that appears to be the case.

I guess I have to buy another modem...Sigh.
