wouldnt i need a special port cable.... ??
since i would just be sending information to the laptop,,, would i have to run a network...
i wish i would haev bought a nicc card w/ethernet... i might just be able to make a crossover cable!
i should of thought twice before buying the PCMCIA modem card....
im really confused on this....
(now i have an additional problem!!!
here goes** i installed AOL 3.0 i also have the drivers for the modem card installed as well, everything was ready to go, then i hit dialup on the AOL screen, and it said that the COM1 wasnt reading a modem)
i checked the settings, and it shows
COM1 and COM2 ports empty,
butunder MODEM properties it shows COM5 with the PCMCIA card,
0(but on the drivers it shows PCMCIA as a modem card, but not on a COM port!!)
problem is AOL only reads COM 1,2,3,4 BUT NOT 5
I'm wondering if i can change the COM port????
i have tried changing the COM ports from the advance settings but then again, on the drivers it doesnt have the PCMCIA card on the list!!! im comfused
