I have a GVC internal 56k isa modem model no. SF-1156HV+/R19 I have had no luck in finding jumper setting details.Can any body please help.

Internal ISA modems usually have two sets of jumpers. One is for the IRQ, and one is for the Com Port. Ususally the IRQ can be set to either 3, 4, 5, 7, and sometimes 9. The com can usually be set to 1, 2, 3, or 4. Mostly it only takes one jumper to accomplish each task, though sometimes there is a multi jumper setting for "plug and play". I like to use com 3 IRQ 3 (you have to disable the motherboard's onboard com2, which uses IRQ 3), but if you aren't using a serial mouse on com1, you can usually use com 3 IRQ 4 successfully as well. Don't use IRQ 5, 7, or 9, unless you have no sound, printer, or video accelerator.

It never hurts to stick it in there and see what Win9x autodetects. That will often give you a clue as to what the settings are...

Thanks for your help Dave. I will try what you have suggested.
I would still like to acquire details on jumper settings. There are 3 jumper sets on the board.
A manual for the board would be useful, please anybody !!
