Question about Intel Motherboard
I recently reloaded w98se-I have to use this os because I have older ham radio H/W that uses drivers written for w98se.
When I brought up the computer after the reload, I had com1 and 2 on the mobo. I then added an SIIG PCI fast serial/parallel card and rebooted. What I ended up with was a com1-2-3 with the added card as com 3. Now my understanding is that com 2 pretty much uses the same resources as com 1. I need 3 "unsharing " com ports. So, I went in to bios and diabled com 2 ,then rebooted. The add-on card was installed as com 2 and com 3 was gone. Some how, I think there was an installation floppy with the add-on card but I cannot find it. I did all this the first time many years ago so I may be wrong, but for years, I had a com1-3-5 setup with the SIIG card installing as com 3 the mobo com ports as com 1 and com 5. I sure would love to get back to that configuration.
ps there are no jumpers on the SIIG card.
if yr card is working condication then u have to han ge slote of yr card. and if u want to chand com poer serise number then got to device manager then go to serila port which u want to change then select port properitis then got port setting then advance u seen a TAD CALL SERIAL NUMBER then selicket which number u want u have to select all serial number.
thanks to using fixya.
