Q66536: Practical Peripherals and Serial Mouse Configuration
Article: Q66536 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | mouse modem practical peripherals | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 15-NOV-1990 If the Microsoft serial mouse is connected to COM 1, then a Practical Peripherals 2400 baud rate modem cannot be configured as COM 2. This modem/mouse combination may work for a while, but eventually it will fail to an I/O address conflict between the mouse and the modem. Practical Peripherals technical support ( 991-8200) confirms this to be a problem. They recommend that the modem be configured as COM 3 or COM 4. The mouse should then remain on COM 1 to separate the I/O addresses as much as possible.
