Hmmm, this only seems to happen with WinME and not Win98 1st Ed
and 2nd Ed though. Ofcourse, with WinME, I had to update the TP Modem
drivers to 2.60 from the previous 2.51 so I don't really know. Actually,
3Com came out with a XJack version of my card except it only has one XJack
so you can't use both the modem and the NIC at the same time which is bad.

I think I can but haven't really tried it. Also, is each modem on
the TP supposed to have it's own Wave Device for the sound support since I
think with WinME when I uninstalled the TP Modem drivers and deleted the
Modem from 3Com card, it seems Win will only readd the ThinkPad Wave
Device after reinstalling the TP drivers but when I readded the 3Com
drivers, it didn't add anything before like it used to.
