Hi all,
I have a dial-up connection at my home.I use a Intel V.92 internal modem to connect to the internet.I have a Reliance IndiaMobile LG RD-2030 CDMA 1X handset,which can be used to connect to the internet wirelessly.I bought a USB kit yesterday that helps me connect the handset and connect to the internet.But when I installed the accompanying software everything went fine,even the internet connection worked fine.But today when I tried connecting the normal dial-up connection,Windows XP SP1 said that the port is already in use.I then checked the settings and saw that the Intel Modem was considered at COM3 port and the LG USB modem was at the same COM3 port.I then removed and installed the Intel modem.It connected,but the other failed.
Thus when one works fine,other fails.I tried changing PCI slots of the internal modem without any positive results.
Waiting for some positive posts....
Thanks in advance...

pranav81, it sounds like both devices are set to use COM3. You need to tell one of them to use another port. (i.e. COM4, it you're not already using that one.)

On some of the older cards, there were switches that had to be set to tell the card what COM port to use. Most of the newer ones, (i.e. Plug and Play) the COM port is set via software.

For example, to change the COM port on my current modem, I would go to the "Device Manager" (I also use XP). I would then find my modem in the list of devices, right click on it and select "Properties". Under "Advanced Port Settings" there is a drop-down menu that I can use to select the desired COM port. The device manager should also inform you if one device conflicts with another. (i.e. If you change it to COM4, but another device it using that one.)

I hope this helps. Good luck.
