tried to use the second motherboard port and just can't :(

"impossible to open port 1" is the only answer I get.

The device driver only supports one port.

For curiosity, is there a hardware limitation underlying this restriction?

Or is this a possible limitation of the driver itself?

As I said above, the device *driver* only supports one port.

Just to clarify, the device driver is only software restricted to using one port right?

If someone was to write a replacement (or a team member modifies the existing driver...) the second port doesn't have any hardware restrictions stopping it from being used concurrently right?
