GENERAL BIOS INSTRUCTIONS
Note: These installation instructions are for Award Modular BIOS but other BIOS are similar.
NOTE: Some motherboards have a dedicated IrDA port that is not multiplexed with the second serial port. Should that be the case, all you need to do is to enable the IrDA port.
RX active Low.
Note: A small percentage of motherboards available
today have these polarities in reverse, namely, TX active Low and RX active
High. If the Infrared Drive's transmit LED is visually on all
the time, then your current polarity selection definitely needs to be reversed.
Modem, network card, and some other add-on
cards also occupy COM ports and IRQ's. Before exiting out of the CMOS setup
and proceeding to the next step, you need to make sure that there is no
device, including your on-board serial ports and IrDA port, on the system
that has the same COM port or same IRQ assignment. It is recommended
to set device on PnP (plug-and-play) mode so that Windows can avoid conflict
for you by taking over the port and IRQ assignment task.
