Hello Cesar,

I have had good luck with a product called a "Rocket port" by Comtrol.  
The one I have  uses one IRQ to work across 4 additional serial ports.

I have had good result with it under Windows 95 and have recommended it to
many users of DX4WIN.

Their home page is under construction, but here is the URL:  


It does have the  phone number, email, and address.

As I recall, the four port board I bought was about $210.  I believe they
have boards with u to 32 additional ports!

I think if I had to do again, I would have bought the one with 8 ports.
It's only about $50 more.
