BayPac Modem Support

LEGACY PRODUCT NOTICE:  Our BayPac modem series (BP-1, BP-2, BP-2M and BP-96A) is no longer supported beyond the information found below and on other related pages of our website.  This is due to the fact that these modems have not been compatible with any version of Windows released in the last ~20 years, and have been replaced by much more capable hardware (SignaLink USB).

Installation Disks For the BayPac Modems

Here is the latest version of the software disk normally supplied with our BayPac modem. These disk files are supplied in a "compressed" format. To create your installation disk, download the "self extracting" file below into an empty subdirectory on your hard drive. Then execute the file and it will expand into the individual files that need to be on the installation floppy disk. Next copy all the "extracted" files (not the master file that you downloaded) to your floppy disk. This creates an exact copy of our installation floppy disk. Remember that you must copy these to a FLOPPY DISK for installation. You CANNOT install the software from the hard drive directory that you downloaded to! Note that the actual "programs" will not appear until after you install from the floppy disk! 

We update these files regularly. Be sure to record the file date when you download, so that you can tell if the file has been changed since you last visited this page.

NOTE:  Our license agreement with the BayCom Team now allows us to ship the latest version of BayCom with all of our packet modems. However, the license does not allow us to make the latest version available for download. Because of this, these installation files contain the previous shareware version of BayCom. All of the documentation files are updated regularly though and are always current. 

Replacement installation disks can be obtained from us (for a nominal charge) if you still have your original disk. If you do not have the original installation disk, then you will need to purchase another registered copy. Please contact our Technical Support Staff for more information.
