Pci Usb Only Works With Shared Irq

  1. My OS is Windows 98SE, Motherboard M747 with Celeron 333 MHz, BIOS 1996 release 29/10/1998.
    I have:
    PCI modem slot 1.
    PCI USB slot 2.
    Free IRQ 12.
    While trying to add a PCI to USB card ALI M5273 (Compliant with USB 2, OHCI 1, EHCI 0.95):
    1- Takes IRQ 12, ask to install again.
    2- Takes IRQ 11, the IRQ of the Audio Device, ask to install again.
    3- Takes IRQ 10, shearing it with the PCI Modem.
    Since the controller is not found:
    4- Add an unknown device.
    Now the device connected (digital camera) works to get recorded images but as web cam only one very short time when connecting.
    I have tried others drivers for ALI M5273, but the only that works partially is the provided with Win98SE.

    Thaks you for reading.

    PC CHIPS motherboard, eh?

    Let the bios configure the IRQ. It always works with Windows 95b and 98SE

    I changed the PCI USB card for a BELKIN four ports, 12 Mbps each, and it is working OK
    Thanks, Luis
