Installing SM56 Software on Windows NT 4.0

Important -- The SM56 software for Windows NT is Data/Fax only, there is no speakerphone or TAM supported.

Windows NT 4.0 does not fully support plug and play (PnP). Therefore, after installing the modem board in the computer and booting, the operating system will not automatically recognize that new hardware is present. You must manually install the modem as follows:

Step 1 -- Install a COM port for the modem

You must install a COM port for the SM56 modem as follows:

1. Open the Windows NT Control Panel.
2. Double click the Ports icon. The Ports window opens.
3. Select Add.
4. Select a COM port number (in the range 1-4 preferably) that is not already installed, and allocate to it the standard resources as follows:

	COM Port		IO Address		IRQ 
	1			3F8			4
	2			2F8			3
	3			3E8			4
	4			2E8			3

5. When your selections are complete click OK.
6. You will be prompted to restart the computer, do not do so yet. Select Don't Restart Now.
7. Close the Ports window.


Step 2 -- Install the SM56 AC-L modem software

1. Open the Windows NT Control Panel.
2. Double click the Modems icon....the Install New Modem dialog appears.
3. Click the "Don't detect my modem; I will select it from a list" check box. Then click Next.
4. Click the Have Disk button.
5. Browse to the CD-ROM:\Modem\NT40. Click misgmodm.inf to highlight it. Then click Open, then click OK.
6. Select the Motorola SM56 AC-L Modem from the list. Click Next.
7. Click the port number selected in Step 1 above to highlight it as the COM port for the modem. Then click Next. The wizard will now copy all the necessary files and install the SM56 AC-L modem on your PC.
8. When complete, restart the PC to activate and start the COM port and SM56 AC-L modem devices. You are now ready to use the modem.
