Default Enabling LTE Lite Modem (was LTE 4/25c)

I posted this as a new topic to possibly get input from any occasional

those modems you mentioned are they external ones or internal ones,
third party modems for the LTE Lite Series? never heard bout
them...Anyways..if you insert an internal modem (such as the SpeedPAQ

Modem) into the unit then you should check the BIOS (Press F10 right
after the memory counting). Somewhere under Modem-Settings.

They are internal PCMCIA type 2 and fit in the card slot. Since both
sub-assemblies( just the guts of the LTE) had the same modem
installed it must be a unit which works with the LTE Lite. The BIOS

System Board Serial Device..........................Com1, IRQ4
Internal Modem/2nd Serial Device.................Com2, IRQ3
Modem State............................................. ..Off
Integrated Trackball.....................................Auto , IRQ15

F4 config brings up...... Internal Modem/2nd Serial Device
with "Com 2, IRQ3" hi-lited.

When it boots to DOS it lists:

and installs the Logitech Mouse Driver Release 6.44
"Reading MOUSEDRV.ini initialization file
Searching for mouse..........
COM4 serial device found
EGA/VGA connected
Mouse driver installed


I don't have a serial mouse to try on Com 1 so I
can't see if somehow the LMOUSE is hogging the IRQ
but since the BIOS seems to recognize the modem
before the LMouse is installed it seems unlikely.

Does your LTE BIOS also show Modem State.....off
when you boot up ? Is there some sort of modem driver
install in your autoexec or config.sys files ?
MSDOS has the generic Unimodem.inf file which mentions
APEX but I imagine that it is only for W95.
