Before connecting the Modem, select the operating system used and read the
pre-installation information.
DOS and Windows 3.1x
Most portable computers include some form of Card and Socket Services. This
software enables the computer’s internal PCMCIA controller to operate. If Card
and Socket Services are installed, Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups
3.11 do not require any special drivers to communicate with the Modem; install
the communications software to use the Modem. If the version of the Modem
purchased included communications software, see chapter 5, “Installing the
Communications Software.”
If unsure whether Card and Socket Services are installed, insert the Modem. If
the computer beeps, the Modem should be configured and ready to use.
If Card and Socket Services are not installed, the Point Enabler software must
be installed.
Installing Point Enabler
If the computer does not have Card and Socket Services, the “Point Enabler”
software must be installed. This software provides MS-DOS with the necessary
drivers to interface with the Modem, but the ability to “hot swap” the Modem is
lost. Point Enabler must be reinstalled whenever the Modem is removed.
To install Point Enabler:
1. Insert the DataLink Installation CD included with the Modem into
the computer’s CD-ROM drive.
2. Find pmxfm.exe and copy it to the root directory of the computer’s default
hard drive.
3
2 Before You Begin
3. To run Point Enabler, enter the following at the DOS prompt:
pmxfm c=x i=y
and then press the Enter key on the keyboard. In the entry above, x
specifies the COM port number (1-4) and y specifies the Interrupt (IRQ)
used (1-15). Using 3 for the COM port and 9 for the IRQ works in
most computers.
4. Once the driver software is loaded and working correctly, add the entry to
your autoexec.bat file to run Point Enabler every time the computer is
turned on. Example:
pmxfm c=3 i=9
5. The config.sys file may need to be modified to exclude an address range
when using Point Enabler. The two examples below show the most
effective ranges and work with the majority of computers. Example A
shows the most common exclusion range. Example B is an alternative if
Example A does not work. Add a line to your config.sys file, as follows:
Example A:
device=c:\dos\emm386.exe noems x=d000-dfff
Example B:
device=c:\dos\emm386.exe noems x=c800-c8ff x=d000-dfff

Note: Point Enabler is used for computers without Card
and Socket Services software only. Also, Point Enabler
operates in the DOS and Windows 3.1x environment exclusively.
Do not use Point Enabler with a Cardbus-capable notebook
computer or a computer running the Windows 95 (or newer)
operating system.
The computer is configured to use the Modem. Next, go to chapter 3, “Installing
the Modem,” to continue installing and configuring the Modem.

Current” (Windows 95a), or check “Disable in this hardware profile”
(Windows 95 OSR2).
5. If another window appears, select Yes, then click OK. A red “X” appears on
the disabled COM port icon.
Windows 95 will not load the driver software from the Installation CD.
In rare instances, Windows 95 identifies the Modem as new hardware, but
will not load the driver software from the Installation CD. Instead, it uses
driver software from a previously installed device. As a result, the Modem
will not work with Windows 95 programs such as Dial-Up Networking (but
34
DataLink V.90 PCMCIA Fax Modem
will work with programs that access COM ports). To solve this problem, first
ascertain which version of Windows 95 is running on the computer (see the
