I was just curious why my com port 3 is not listed in the device manager? Im using Windows ME and when i check up my modem in controlpanel/modem/properties it says location is com port3 but when i check under device manager the only ports listed are com1 com2 and LPT1. Why is it not listed? Any suggestion would be great.

Don't fret, most new computers use PCI Winmodems nowdays, these are a software modem, and while they use com port emulation, they don't have physical com port hardware on the boards, Device manager is listing hardware com ports only. :-)
