When the boot probe process finds a PCI modem it automatically moves it to sio4 as the dmesg.boot messages shows below.
sio0: <Zoom PCI Modem> port 0xe400-0xe407,0xe000-0xe0ff, mem 0xe2000000-0xe20000ff irq 3 at device 19.0 on pci0 sio0: moving to sio4 sio4: type 16550A Sio4 is internal device cuaa4. pci0: <unknown card> (vendor=0x1106, dev=0x3050) at 7.3 You will get this message if your PCI modem card is a Winmodem. Very seldom is the PCI modem card physical labeled or marked as a Winmodem. Read the marketing information on the box your PCI modem came in, or check out the support web site for the PCI modem's manufacture to verify it's a Winmodem. If your PCI modem card is am Winmodem, replace it with a PCI modem card that has onbard DSP and controller chips. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
