We've been having some trouble with our modem so I thought I'd look at the installation. When we tested the modem it said that it was installed on COM 3. When we went to check COM 3 in device mgr we discovered that it didn't exist! :eek:

The modem does work so how is this possible :confused:

Yep virtual com ports, gotta love them.

Software modems don't actually have any real hardware interupt, they just pretend they do so the old protocals work.
