If you haven't already got the latest drivers for your modem you should get those and try them. You'll have trouble just find it by knowing it's Lucent. You'll need either a model number or an fcc code to track down the exact modem drivers to get.

Your mate is probably referring not to COM3 which is a possibility but if you don't use/have a second serial port then it would most probably take that spot since COM1 and COM3 share the same IRQ and you would be having conflicts. Same with COM2 and COM4.

Firstly you need to know what modem you have in detail, on it if has telepermit it will give model number eg 'lucent1456' not likely lucent cause thats the chip manufacturer, but some company. Then uninstall/remove the current modem in control panel/modems/then close. Then install new modem by cklicking modems(control panel) letting windows do harware search hopefully it will find a modem on port 1,2,3 or 4 then select modem type from list provided by windows, click next then finish. Any problems post back.
