Com port issue
« on: July 31, 2003, 01:18:16 PM »
:?: I have a Lava computer D-Serial pci card.  I am running Windows XP
 (home).  I have a x-10 device that is connected to com port1 with an
 IRQ of 4,  the modem is connected to com port 4 with an IRQ of 9.
 The com ports 5 and 6 are associated with the pci card.  Plug and play
 assigns an IRQ of 9.  The software for the x-10 device does not
 recognoze com ports above 4 so I can not reassign it to a higher
 com port.  I have been evaluating your software, because the software
 that came with the Lacross ws2010-13 pc link does not recognize com
 ports above 4 either.  The quick set up instructions indicate that you
 could choose a port higher than 4, but the IRQ had to be different than
 the modem.  I have a dsl connection, but still require the modem for
 faxing capabilities.  I have contacted Lava Computer support people
 and they say the only way to be able to change the IRQ with windows XP
 is to reload the OS with different options selected, that is not an option.

 Would anyone have a suggestion to my problem.

Thank You
