  • com port

    Hi,

    in window xp pro, how do you ad port numbers to the hardware devices? I have ports : lpt1, com1 and then com5,com9,com10..com13.

    From com1 to com13 seem to be used by the bluetooth devices. I need ports com 4, com6 and others. How do I get them back?
    In the Bluetooth configuaration, when adding ports I only have the th eport from com9 to com13.

    Thank you.

    Re: com port

    Usually you never have that many com ports. Are you sure you don't mean IRQs?

    If that's the case you'll need to manually assign the resources for the devices that's using the resource in question. Then install the device that you want on that IRQ.

      you mean on my pc assigning IRQs to the ports required by my device i.e. com4, com5? Sorry for being dumb but how do I do this in winXP pro?

      Also can I Uninstall the other ports showing on my hardaware devices and being used by the bluetooth?

      Many thanks.
