Hi. I've got a question about com ports. I am running win 98 and I would like to know how many com ports I should have showing. When I look in the device manager I am seeing com1 and com5. To further make things confusing I have an external modem showing on com1 and com5 (the same modem showing up twice) and an internal modem that claims to be on com2, but com2 doesn't appear in device manager. The internal modem does not work. If anyone can shed a little light on the situation, I would very much appreciate it.
