Trying to install a rockwell 56k speakerphone modem on an old HP Vectra 5/200. with W98 . device manager shows the modem , but when i click on it i get a message"cannot read port name from registry" i have changed the pci slot.. the driver is loaded.. but i still cant get it to dial out.. i have even tried different modems.. still no joy .... what com port is best and how does it relate to IRQ's (whatever they are) in BIOS... so many questions I know I know !

Your Modem does not matter what make, is set to a specific Port so you need to find what port the modem uses before you can set it up

You should have got a CD with the Modem this contains Drivers and other info check each folder for Readme files or such like and double click on it to open. You may have got a Manual, Do not forget that PDF files are what they use now for info in Acrobat Reader
