modem's port should be default COM3 of course you cant set this manually so you pop in the CD that should come with it and install the driver it will set the Modem to COM3

type msinfo32 to find out what modem you have.......and then go to driversall.com and download the driver for it......if you have any disks for the pc the driver maybe on them.......>recovery disks>

DLoad and run Everest Home and run it on that machine...it will tell you exactly which components it has . you can then do a search for the proper drivers.

      As long as It is compatible check the dates. Lt Win modem should be the same with Driversguide.com at least you can select the latest make sure you have the right OS though  ;D
