    Alright - I have a digiboard that has a number of PnP modems attached to it. For some reason, not all are detected 100% on bootup, which removes them from the device list, at least temporarily. This effects the program using said modems. Now, a solution would be to add the modems manually to each port which I did. Then, windows in its infinite wisdom on a reboot, finds a modem on that COM port and reinstalls the PnP modem! Then of course eventually it loses it after a reboot and I'm back to square one! So then I had it restart and find the PnP modems, then disabled them and then tried to add the modems manually to those COM ports - well apparently they're already assigned despite not being active!

    How the fuck do I turn off PnP :rant2: !?!

    W2K BTW

    can't you just turn it off in the bios? I know i've done that before. Maybe it's the crack I'm smoking.

    You can turn off the PnP in the BIOS, but that just prevents the BIOS from changing the settings of the devices (useful for non-pnp OS's).
