We hit the same problem a couple of years ago - see
http://www.g6lvb.com/mixwwisp.doc. USB comm ports should work if the drivers
are any good - some drivers are awful, blue screening and also the COM ports
can come up in random orders. In general, full hardware comm ports are the
most reliable way to get this working: I have an 8 port card on my main PC
as well as the mobo's two ports and another couple on another card. Still, I
never seem to have enough.

If memory serves me right, my old hardware TNC modems delivered better
performance than the soundcard did.
