Introduction
Welcome to the world of data communications. You have acquired
one of the finest intelligent data and fax modems available today,
model MT2834ZPX, from Multi-Tech Systems. This Owner’s Manual
will help you install, configure, test and use your MT2834ZPX data/fax
modem.
Modem Features
Your MT2834ZPX modem meets the proposed Enhanced V.34 ITU
standard for data signalling rates as high as 33.6/31.2K bps full-duplex
mode. Connections are made on Public Switched Telephone Networks
(PSTNs). V.34 supports and is compatible with all V.32/V.32bis/
V32terbo features including EIA extended Automode, adaptive line
probing, automatic symbol rate and carrier frequency during start-up,
and retrain and rate renegotiation (in 2400 bps increments).
Your modem features CCITT V.42 error correction and V.42bis data
compression, providing 100% error-free data transmission. V.42 error
correction incorporates MNP( Classes 3 and 4, and LAP-M. You may
select V.42bis data compression for 4-1 throughput, or MNP Class 5
for 2-1 throughput.)
Your MT2834ZPX offers interactive automatic dialing, as well as
Command Mode option configuration. You may store up to ten
command line/telephone numbers, of up to 60 characters each, in the
modem’s nonvolatile memory. The modem pulse or tone dials, and
recognizes dial tones and busy signals for reliable call-progress
detection. The modem can detect AT&T calling card tones. It is FCCRegistered for connection to telephone networks without any Data
Access Arrangements (DAA’s).
Your modem also features Remote Configuration which permits you to
assist users at remote sites, saving you the time and trouble of site
visits and preventing misinterpretation of configuration instructions.

MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
Fax Features
Your MT2834ZPX meets the CCITT V.17 standard for sending and
receiving faxes. When linked to a compatible fax machine or modem,
it can transmit faxes at 14.4 K bps. It also meets the CCITT’s Group 3
Designation for sending and receiving faxes at 9600 bps; and Group 2
Designation for sending and receiving faxes at 4800 bps. The
MT2834ZPX is also downward-compatible with modems to speeds as
low as 300 bps, so it can send and receive faxes with any fax machine
in the world.
Product Description
The MT2834ZPX is a internal half-length fax/modem card for IBM
Personal Computers (PC, XT, AT Pentium or compatible units); and
fits into a full- or half-size expansion slot. The MT2834ZPX provides
dial-up asynchronous communication capability with other personal
computers, terminals, on-line computer services or other types of
computer systems. Connection to the phone line is made possible by
an RJ11 modular type connector. The MT2834ZPX can be configured
as either a COM1, COM2, COM3, or COM4 communication port; with
a selection of 5 IRQ values. Selection of a specific COM port/IRQ
value is accomplished by choosing the proper berg jumpers located on
the MT2834ZPX's circuit board. Hardware configuration and
installation procedures are described in Chapter 2.

MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
Configuration/Installation Procedure
Perform the procedures in Table 2-1 to configure and install the
MT2834ZPX card into your ISA or EISA bus host computer.
Table 2-1. Configuration and Installation Procedure
Step
10
Procedure
1
Make sure your computer and any peripheral equipment
connected to it, are turned off. Failure to do so may damage both
your modem and your PC. The card may be installed in any 286-,
386- , 486- or Pentium based computer with an ISA or EISA bus
architecture.
2
Remove the cover of your computer as instructed in your
computer’s documentation.
3
Locate the unused slot(s) which you will be using for your modem
card, and remove the slot cover(s) per the instructions in your
computer’s documentation.
4
Figure 2-1 illustrates the default COM port and IRQ value setting
for this card (COM2/IRQ3). If your application requires an
alternate setting, remove the berg jumpers from the COM2/IRQ3
position and place them in a position that supports your
application. The MT2834ZPX can be configured for either a
COM1, COM2, COM3 or COM4 communication port; with a
selection of five IRQ values for each port. By this means, the user
may select an identical COM port because of the expanded IRQ
value selection option (e.g., the MT2834ZPX has a factory default
of COM2/IRQ3...a Mouse device can also be configured at COM2
but at IRQ4...a Printer device configured at COM2 but at IRQ7...).

Procedure
5
Install the MT2834ZPX card into the selected expansion slot(s) in
the same manner as any other add-on card, as instructed in your
computer’s documentation.
6
Fasten the retaining bracket to the computer chassis and replace
the cover.
7
Your MT2834ZPX requires a modular LINE JACK. This is typically
an RJ11C or RJ11W jack, but could also be an RJ12 or RJ13
jack. To connect the modem to the PSTN line, plug one end of
the RJ11 cable that is provided with the modem into the LINE
JACK connector and the other end into the phone-companyprovided RJ11C or RJ11W modular phone jack.
If you wish to have a telephone set connected to the same
telephone line for voice communications, you may plug a
telephone set into the modem's connector labeled PHONE JACK.
This connector is provided as a convenience. Simply plug one
end of the RJ11C's modular jack that is provided with the modem
into the modem's PHONE JACK connector and the other end into
the telephone's RJ11C's connector. Note: Any cables connected
to the computer must be shielded to reduce interference.
8
Turn power on to your computer.
Is Your MT2834ZPX Ready for Use?
As soon as you connected power to the modem, if you’re an
experienced modem user, you may simply want to check your
modem’s settings for data compression, error correction, and so on.
You may find that you can get moving quite quickly if you just issue an
ATL5, ATL6 and an ATL7 command. These commands lists how
your modem is currently configured. If you come across a setting
you’re unsure of, refer to Chapters 3 and 4 of this manual for AT
command and S-Register explanations and defaults.
If you’re a novice, please continue to the next sections of this chapter.
12
Chapter 2 - Installation and Configuration
Operating Your MT2834ZPX
You control your MT2834ZPX by issuing AT commands and setting SRegisters. Right now your MT2834ZPX is set up for the most typical
user application, that is, as a traditional modem set to make a dial-up
call to a remote installation where the call is answered automatically;
therefore, you shouldn’t need to change the current default
configuration. (If however, you know that your application does not
follow this profile, please refer to Chapters 3 and 4 for AT Commands
and S-Registers.)
In operating your MT2834ZPX it is likely that you will use your data
communications software to either:
•
enter “terminal” mode, where you can “speak most directly” to the
modem by issuing AT commands, or to
•
launch a datacomm session through a set of modem
configurations which you select and then associate with a target
telephone number. Once you have created, saved, and named
this set of information according to your connection needs and
your datacomm software’s conventions, the software then
simplifies your dialing because you needn’t reconfigure your
modem, nor run the risk of mistakenly keying-in incorrect
information.
Either way, you need to understand that an AT command is the
method by which your modem is controlled, and must therefore prefix
nearly all commands. AT stands for attention, and alerts the modem
that a command follows. You may enter these commands with either
upper- or lower-case characters. Entering AT automatically sets the
modem’s serial baud rate to match your computer’s and also sets the
modem’s parity. It also clears the modem’s command buffer.
Once you’re in terminal mode, enter AT followed by <CR> to check
whether your modem is operational. If everything’s fine, your modem
will respond OK.
13
MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
Simple Operations
You can dial a number by using the ATD command and the phone
number of the modem with which you wish to connect, e.g.,
ATD6127853500. Your modem will dial the number; a “scrambling”
noise is heard as the modem negotiates the kind of connection it can
make, and once the modems have settled on a common connection, a
connect message on your computer’s video is displayed.
To hang up a call, enter +++ATH<CR>. Your modem will return on
hook, just as if you had returned a phone’s handset to its cradle. Your
video now displays OK, signifying that your modem is ready for your
next command.
14
Chapter 3 - Software Configuration
Chapter 3 - Software Configuration
Introduction
Communications software must be configured to work with your
modem, your computer, and the remote system it is calling.
Fortunately, most communications programs make the process easy
by providing a default initialization string for your modem as well as
defaults for most of the other required parameters.
Configuring Software for Your Modem
Because remote computers may have different connection
requirements such as speed, number of bits, parity, log-on sequences,
etc., communications software is typically configured by sessions,
each session having a unique configuration for a given connection
(e.g., to a BBS or commercial on-line service). Most communications
programs, however, have a separate modem configuration menu
because modem configurations rarely change from session to session.
The most important configuration is the modem initialization string.
This is a sequence of commands the software uses to configure the
modem when the communications software is loaded or when a
session begins. Always begin the initialization string with the ATtention
command AT, then follow it with the modem reset command, &F.
Issuing a reset command before other commands ensures that you
are starting with a known state.
The rest of the commands in the initialization string depend on the
capabilities of the modem and what you want it to do. Some older
communications programs require you to create the initialization string
by yourself. Most modern communications programs, however, provide
you with a ready-made initialization string that is automatically
selected when you choose your modem model from a list. It is a poor
idea to use an initialization string intended for another modem,
especially one from another manufacturer, because modem
capabilities and command implementations vary from modem to
modem. However, if your MT2834ZPX does not appear on a modem
list, you may use the MultiModemII initialization string.
15
MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
PC Initialization Strings
We recommend the following initialization string for a MT2834ZPX
connected to a PC-compatible computer:
AT &F X4 S0= 2 ^M
This string resets the MT2834ZPX to the factory default settings,
selects extended result codes with NO DIAL TONE and BUSY, and
turns on auto-answer to answer on the second ring. ^M must end
every string sent to the modem from software. It is the ASCII code for
the RETURN key on most keyboards, and the default code for the
carriage return character in the MT2834ZPX and most
communications programs. The carriage return character is defined in
the MT2834ZPX in S-register S3; if you change it, you must also
change the carriage return character code used in your
communications software. If you send a command directly to the
modem in terminal mode rather than indirectly through
communications software, you must end the command string by
pressing the RETURN key (<CR>) instead of adding ^M to the string.
Figure 3-1. The MEW Modem Initialization Setup
*Note that the above and following setup screens are examples found in
MultiExpress for Windows (MEW), and that other 3rd party data communication
software is similar but different.
16
Chapter 3 - Software Configuration
Changing Default Parameters
The default values for the other parameters in modem configuration
menus rarely need changing. They typically include the dialing prefix
(ATDT for touch-tone service and ATDP for rotary service), the dialing
suffix (^M), the hang-up string (+++ATH0^M), and response
messages (RING, NO CARRIER, BUSY, etc.). Communications
software with a host mode might also include an auto-answer string
(AT S0=1^M).
Configuring Software for Your Computer
You must configure your communications software to match your
computer’s configuration. If the MT2834ZPX is connected to the
COM2 communications port, you must tell the software you are using
COM2. Another important parameter is the serial port baud rate. This
is the speed at which your modem communicates with your computer,
not the speed at which your modem communicates with another
modem. When V.42bis data compression is enabled, you must have a
serial port baud rate four times the transmission speed of the modem
to optimize making data compression effective.
Figure 3-2. MEW Configuration Parameters Screen
17
MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
Configuring Software for the Remote System
You must meet the requirements of the remote system for successful
communications. Though the MT2834ZPX can automatically match
the speed of the other modem, you must specify parameters such as
type of flow control, break length, number of data bits, number of stop
bits, and parity. If you set these parameters incorrectly with the remote
system, gibberish will appear on your screen (See Figure 3-2).
Terminal Emulation
If you are accessing the remote computer as if from an on-site
terminal, the keyboard codes used by your computer may not match
the ones used by the remote computer. To be compatible with the
remote computer, your software must be able to substitute the
appropriate codes in what is known as terminal emulation. Most
communications programs can emulate the most common mainframe
terminals, including the DEC VT100, VT102, and VT52 terminals, and
the basic TTY mode. If in doubt about which to choose for a BBS, try
ANSI or VT100 first. The following is the MultiExpress for Windows
Terminal Emulation selection screen:
Figure 3-3. MEW Terminal Emulation Setup Screen
18
Chapter 3 - Software Configuration
File Transfer Protocols
When you upload or download files with your modem, the host
computer will ask which file transfer protocol you want to use. Most
communications programs allow you to choose a default protocol.
Your software’s documentation should list the ones it can use (not all
communications programs support all protocols). Zmodem is the
default protocol in MultiExpress for Windows, and we recommend it for
most transfers. The following is the MEW File Transfer Protocols
screen:
Figure 3-4. MEW File Transfer Protocols Screen
When to Disable Data Compression
The speed advantage hardware compression gives you is entirely
dependent on how much the data being transmitted can be
compressed. If the data is already in compressed form—a .ZIP or a
.SIT file, for example—trying to compress it more will actually slow the
transmission slightly compared to transmitting the same file with
compression disabled. This effect will be most noticeable if your
modem negotiates MNP 5 compression with the other modem. V.42bis
will not try to further compress a compressed file, but MNP 5 will.
The command to disable compression is AT &E14 <CR>. If you use
your modem mostly for downloading long, compressed files from
BBSs, you may want to include the &E14 command in your
initialization string as follows:
AT &F S0=0 X4 &E14 ^M
19
MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
As a general rule, you should try to transmit files in alreadycompressed form rather than relying on V.42bis hardware
compression. Because software compression is more efficient than
hardware compression, you will have a higher throughput with the
former. Of course, this efficiency does not include the time spent
compressing and decompressing .ZIP or .SIT files, but it will save on
phone bills. And hardware compression will still be there for those
occasions when it is inconvenient to compress a file with software.
Disabling Error Correction
By default, the MT2834ZPX is set to auto-reliable mode. In this mode
the MT2834ZPX determines during the handshake whether the other
modem is using V.42 error correction. If it is, the MT2834ZPX then
switches itself to reliable mode and enables error correction. If it is not,
the MT2834ZPX remains in non-error correction mode.
Typically, we recommend that you leave the MT2834ZPX set to autoreliable mode (&E1). However, you may encounter some
circumstances in which the MT2834ZPX will work better with error
correction turned off. For example, it has been reported that on
CompuServe error correction will slow file transfers at modem speeds
of 9600 bps and under. If this is a problem for you, you can turn off
error correction with the command AT &E0, or you can include the
command in your initialization string as follows:
AT &F S0=0 X4 &E0 ^M
The 16550 UART and Windows 3.1
Windows 3.1 may cause a loss of data when communicating at high
speed, even with a 16550 UART installed. Because Windows is
multitasking—it switches between several programs running at the
same time—it can make the serial port wait briefly while Windows
performs other tasks. Meanwhile, incoming data can be lost. The older
8250A and 16450 UARTs can store data in a one-byte first in-first out
(FIFO) buffer (a memory area in the UART in which the first bit in is
the first out), but once the buffer is full, the data is lost. The 16550 has
a 16-byte FIFO buffer, which accounts for much of its high speed.
However, in Windows 3.1, the 16550’s FIFO buffer is disabled by
default.
20
Chapter 3 - Software Configuration
To enable the buffer, use Notepad to open the SYSTEM.INI file in your
Windows directory, and add the following line to the [386Enh] section:
COMnFIFO=1
where n is the number of the COM port the 16550 is installed on. For
example, if the 16550 is installed on COM2, the line should be:
COM2FIFO=1
After you save SYSTEM.INI you must restart Windows for the change
to take effect.
However, there is another problem when the FIFO buffer is enabled:
Windows cannot recognize the COM port because of a bug in the
Windows 3.1 serial port driver, COMM.DRV. The only way around this
problem is to replace the COMM.DRV file in the WINDOWS\SYSTEM
directory with another driver. Several drivers are available
commercially or on BBSs that will solve this problem. A freeware driver
called CyberCom is available as CYBERC.ZIP on CompuServe in the
IBM Communications Forum, Library 0. CyberCom will enable
Windows communications at speeds up to 115,200 bps if you have a
16550 UART installed.

MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
Chapter 4 - AT Commands, S-Registers and Result
Codes
Dialing/On-Line/Answering
There are several basic steps for “originating” and “answering” in data
communication mode:
1.
Load communication software
2.
Dial
3.
Establish On-Line connection
4.
Terminate Call
A simple way to dial is from the keyboard of your computer or terminal.
You enter a command on the keyboard to tell the MT2834ZPX to dial.
If you use a sophisticated communications software package
(e.g., MultiExpress for Windows), the software tells you to enter phone
numbers and other information. If this is the case, the software, and
not you, gives the dialing commands to the modem. All of the
commands, S-Registers and intelligent features of the MT2834ZPX is
taken care of by the software.
If you are giving commands directly to your modem (and not through
your software), each command must begin with AT (ATtention
Characters). AT characters may be entered in upper or lower case.
Entering AT automatically sets the modem’s speed to match the speed
of the computer or terminal, and also sets the modem’s parity. If you
are using a terminal, you can issue commands directly, but computers
must be placed in terminal mode before the modem recognizes
commands. To operate the computer in terminal mode, you must run
a data comm package like MultiExpress, or MultiExpress for Windows,
depending on the type of datacomm call you want to place and
whether you are calling under a DOS or Windows environment. Refer
to your software's documentation to load and run the datacomm
software.
AT characters alert the modem that a command follows. The AT
Command can also be used to clear the command buffer, by simply
typing AT and hitting RETURN.
The letter D in a command causes the modem to dial the numbers
immediately following it (e.g., ATD6127853500).
22
Chapter 4 - AT Commands, S-Registers and Result Codes
The MT2834ZPX responds with “CONNECT” on your video display
after the number is dialed and a connection signal is detected (since
the MT2834ZPX defaults to Enhanced V.34/V.42/V.42bis, the actual
response is "CONNECT LAPM COMPRESSED”). The modem is now
in “On-Line” mode, and is ready to communicate with a host site.
If no connection signal is detected within 45 seconds (this time period
can be adjusted by S-Register S7), the MT2834ZPX goes On Hook/
hangs up and returns to Command mode. At this point, your video
displays “NO CARRIER”.
Enter +++ATH<CR> to Hang Up On-Line (bring modem on-hook), and
terminate the modem's On-Line mode. At this point, your video
displays “OK”.
In addition to the call originating capabilities, the MT2834ZPX can also
automatically answer incoming calls. You need not be present. You
can, however, control the situation by configuring the modem to either
answer or not to answer, or to answer after a specified number of
rings. This is done by setting the value of S-Register S0 (modem
defaults to automatically answer an incoming call after one ring).
Modem AT Commands
AT commands are the means by which you, and your communications
software, are able to communicate with and configure your modem.
They enable you to establish, read, and modify parameters in addition
to dialing. The following provides a summary and brief explanation of
the AT commands recognized by the MT2834ZPX.

Remote Configuration
The Remote Configuration feature is a network management tool that
allows you to configure modems remotely. This means you could
configure modems anywhere in your network from one location without
having to visit the sites or rely on remote users to follow your
instructions. With Remote Configuration, which is protected by two
level security, you can downline load new parameters, program new
V.42 capabilities and implement new features. Remote Configuration
also makes troubleshooting a remote location a lot easier.
The way Remote Configuration works is that S-Register S13 has been
set-up to contain the special Remote Configuration escape code.
When calling a Remote Configuration equipped modem, you enter the
proper Remote Escape code to enable entering your Set-up
Password. After entering it, you can then execute AT commands as if
you were connected locally. If you set S-Register S13 to zero,
Remote Configuration is disabled.
Remote Configuration Procedures
The procedures for using the Remote Configuration features are the
same whether or not a call originates from the remote modem. Once
the modem is on-line, perform the procedures in Table 4-1.
TABLE 4-1. Remote Configuration Operation Procedures
Step
1.
Procedure
Remote Escape Configuration requires %%%<CR> to be
sent if the default value in S-Register S13 has not been
changed.
The modem responds with:
1. - DATA Mode
2. - COMMAND Mode
2.
You then select 1 or 2 . With 1, the modem goes
back into data mode and with 2, the modem responds with the following:
Password>
3.
Enter your Set-up Password, and if the code is
correct the modem responds with:
OK
38
Chapter 4 - AT Commands, S-Registers and Result Codes
TABLE 4-1 (Cont'd). Remote Configuration Operation Procedures
You can now use any AT commands of the modem
being remotely configured as if they were being
entered locally. You cannot change the Set-up of the
LOGIN Password until you enter the proper LOGIN
Password.
Step
4.
Procedure
When you are done entering AT commands and you
want to exit, type AT0 and hit RETURN. The modem
responds with:
1. DATA Mode
2. COMMAND Mode
5.
Enter a 1 to go back on-line with your computer, or
enter 2 and the correct password to talk to your
modem.

S-Registers
Certain Command Mode configurations are stored in memory registers
called, S-Registers. The S command is used to assign a value to, and
to read the current value of an S-Register. To assign a value to an SRegister, enter the letter S, followed by the S-Register number and an
equals sign (=). To read an S-Register value, enter the letter S
followed by the S-Register number and a question mark (?), then hit
RETURN. To verify that the S-Register value was entered correctly,
enter for example, ATS8? and hit RETURN. You should receive a
response of the assigned value given to that S-Register.

MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
AT Commands and S-Register Summary
The vast majority of installations are similar, with the MT2834ZPX
being used to dial up a remote installation where the call is
automatically answered. Your MT2834ZPX has a default configuration
to dial another 33,600 bps modem that support error correction, data
compression and flow control. If the answering modem is not
compatible, the MT2834ZPX can match protocols, provided the
protocols are industry standard (i.e., ITU-T, AT&T or Bell) and not
proprietary.
AT&W0 (or AT&W) command, used in conjunction with specific other
AT commands and S-Registers, can reconfigure the MT2834ZPX to
conform to a specific application. The MT2834ZPX can store its
configuration parameters and S-Register values in its nonvolatile
memory (RAM). This command also sets the modem upon power up,
or when it is reset with an ATZ command, the modem reads all its
configuration and S-Register parameters from RAM, and not from the
factory settings in ROM (note you may recall factory installed defaults
by entering AT&F8&W0).
The &W command changes the configuration parameters stored in
RAM that you specifically intend to alter. All other default parameters
remain unchanged.
The AT&W1 command sets the modem so that it does not store its
parameters in RAM, and on power up or when an ATZ command is
issued, parameters are read from the factory default settings in ROM.
You may first view the modem's current operating parameters by using
the ATL5, ATL6 and ATL7 commands to display the current modem
configuration; then alter the modem's configuration settings if your
application requires you to do so.

Chapter 5 - Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
Your MT2834ZPX was thoroughly tested at the factory before it was
shipped. If you are unable to make a successful connection or if you
experience data loss or garbled characters during your connection, it
is possible that the modem is defective. However, it is more likely that
the source of your problem lies elsewhere. Problems you may
encounter include the following:
•
The modem does not respond to commands.
•
The modem dials but is unable to make a connection.
•
The modem disconnects while online.
•
The modem cannot connect when answering.
•
File transfer is slower than it should be.
•
Losing data.
•
Getting garbage characters on the monitor.
•
Can’t run fax and communications software at the same time.
If you experience problems, please check the following possibilities
before calling Tech Support (see Chapter 7).
The Modem Does Not Respond to Commands
•
Make sure you are issuing the modem commands from the data
communications software, either manually in terminal mode or
automatically by configuring the software. (You cannot send
commands to the modem from the DOS prompt.)
•
Make sure you are in terminal mode in your data communications
program, then type AT and press ENTER. If you get an OK
response, your connections are good and the problem likely is in
your phonebook entry or session settings.
•
Try resetting your modem by turning it off and on. Make sure there
is a reset command (&F) in your initialization string, or your
modem may not initialize correctly.
•
If you don’t get an OK, the problem may still be in the
communications software. Make sure you have done whatever is
necessary in your software to make a port connection. Not all
communications programs connect to the COM port automatically.
49
MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
Some connect when the software loads and remain connected
until the program terminates. Others, like MultiExpress Terminal,
can disconnect without exiting the program (make sure the
Connect icon looks plugged in). MultiExpress Terminal also allows
multiple terminals to be open, but only one can access the modem
at a time. If MultiExpress Terminal reports that it cannot make a
connection, click on the Window menu to see if more than one
terminal is open.
•
Your communications software settings may not match the port
the modem is connected to. Or you may have selected a COM
port in your software other than the one the modem is connected
to—compare the settings in your software to the connection.
•
Peripheral expansion cards, such as bus mouse and sound cards,
may include a serial port preconfigured as COM1 or COM2. The
extra serial port, or the card itself, may use the same COM port,
memory address, or interrupt request (IRQ) as your
communications port. Be sure to disable any unused ports.
To look for address or IRQ conflicts if you use Windows 3.1x,
select File, Run in Program Manager, type MSD, and press
ENTER. Then select Mouse, COM Ports, and IRQ Status and note
the addresses and IRQs that are in use. If you find an IRQ
conflict, note which IRQs are not being used, then change one of
the conflicting devices to use one of the unused IRQs. If you find
an address conflict, change the address of one of the conflicting
devices.
To change a port address or IRQ in Windows 3.1x, double-click
the Control Panel icon, then the Ports icon. Click on the port you
want to change, click Settings, click Advanced, and select the new
port address and/or interrupt. If you wish to use COM3 or COM4,
note that COM3 shares an IRQ with COM1, as does COM4 with
COM2, so you should change their IRQs to unused ones, if
possible.
If you use Windows 95, right-click on My Computer, select
Properties from the menu, click on the Device Manager tab,
double-click on Ports, then double-click on the Communications
Port your modem is connected to. In the port’s Properties sheet,
click on the Resources tab to see the port’s Input/Output range
and Interrupt Request. If another device is using the same
address range or IRQ, it will appear in the Conflicting Device List.
50
Chapter 5 - Troubleshooting
Uncheck Use Automatic Settings to change the port’s settings so
they do not conflict with the other device, or select the port the
conflicting device is on and change it instead. If you need to open
your computer to change switches or jumpers on the conflicting
device; refer to the device’s documentation.
•
The modem may be defective. If you have another Multi-Tech
modem, try swapping modems. If the problem goes away, the first
modem is possibly defective. Call Tech Support for assistance
(see Chapter 7).
The Modem Dials But Cannot Make a Connection
There can be several reasons the ZPX fails to make a connection.
Possibilities include
•
lack of a physical connection to the telephone line.
•
a wrong dial tone.
•
a busy signal.
•
a wrong number.
•
no modem at the other end.
•
a faulty modem, computer, or software at the other end.
•
incompatibility between modems.
You can narrow the list of possibilities by using extended result codes.
To enable them, enter ATV1X4 and press ENTER while in terminal
mode, or include V1X4 in the modem’s initialization string. When you
dial again, the modem will report the call’s progress.
•
If the modem reports NO DIALTONE, check that the modem’s
telephone line cable is connected to both the modem’s LINE jack
(not the PHONE jack) and the telephone wall jack. If the cable
looks secure, try replacing it. If that doesn’t work, the problem may
be in your building’s telephone installation. To test the building
installation, plug a telephone into your modem’s telephone wall
jack and listen for a dial tone. If you hear a dial tone, your modem
may be installed behind a company phone system (PBX) with an
internal dial tone that sounds different from the normal dial tone.
In that case, the modem may not recognize the dial tone and may
treat it as an error.
Check your PBX manual to see if you can change the internal dial
tone; if you can’t, change your modem’s initialization string to
replace X4 with X3, which will cause the modem to ignore dial
tones.
51
MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
•
If the modem reports BUSY, the other number may be busy, in
which case you should try again later, or it may indicate that you
have failed to add a 9, prefix to the phone number if you must dial
9 for an outside line.
If you must dial 9 to get an outside line, the easiest way to dial it
automatically is to include it in the modem’s dial prefix, e.g.,
ATDT9,. Note the comma, which inserts a pause before the
number is dialed. By inserting 9, into the dial prefix, you do not
have to include it in each directory entry in MultiExpress Terminal.
To change the dial prefix in MultiExpress Terminal, select Setup,
Modem; then select the modem type you are using, and type the
new prefix in the Dial Prefix box. To change the dial prefix in
Windows Terminal, select Settings, Modem Commands. To
change it in Windows 95 HyperTerminal, select Call, Connect
from the menu bar, click Dialing Properties, and type 9 in the local
and long distance boxes in How I Dial from This Location.
52
•
If the modem reports NO ANSWER, the other system has failed to
go off-hook, or you might have dialed a wrong number. Check the
number.
•
If the modem reports NO CARRIER, the phone was answered at
the other end, but no connection was made. You might have
dialed a wrong number, and a person answered instead of a
computer, or you might have dialed the correct number but the
other computer or software was turned off or faulty. Check the
number and try again, or try calling another system to make sure
your modem is working. Also, try calling the number on your
telephone. If you hear harsh sounds, then another modem is
answering the call, and the modems may be having problems
negotiating because of modem incompatibilities or line noise. Try
connecting at a lower speed.
Chapter 5 - Troubleshooting
The Modem Disconnects While Online
•
If you have call waiting on the same phone line as your modem, it
may interrupt your connection when someone tries to call you. If
you have call waiting, disable it before each call. In most
telephone areas, you can disable call waiting by preceding the
telephone number with *70 (check with your local telephone
company).
You can automatically disable call waiting by including the
disabling code in the modem’s dial prefix (e.g., ATDT*70,—note
the comma, which inserts a pause before the number is dialed).
To change the dial prefix in MultiExpress Terminal, select Setup,
Modem; then select the modem type you are using, and type the
new prefix in the Dial Prefix box. To change the dial prefix in
Windows Terminal, select Settings, Modem Commands. To
change it in Windows 95 HyperTerminal, select Call, Connect
from the menu bar, click Dialing Properties, check this location
has Call Waiting, and select the correct code for your phone
service.
•
If you have extension phones on the same line as your modem,
you or someone else can interrupt the connection by picking up
another phone. If this is a frequent problem, disconnect the
extension phones before using the modem, or install another
phone line especially for the modem.
•
Check for loose connections between the modem and the
computer.
•
You may have had a poor connection because of line conditions
or the problem may have originated on the other end of the line.
Try again.
•
If you were online with a BBS, it may have hung up on you
because of lack of activity on your part or because you exceeded
your time limit for the day. Try again.
53
MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
The Modem Cannot Connect When Answering
•
Auto-answer may be disabled. Turn on auto-answer in your
datacomm program or send the command ATS0=1 to your
modem in terminal mode.
File Transfer Is Slower Than It Should Be
•
If you are using a slow transfer protocol, such as Xmodem or
Kermit, try Zmodem or Ymodem/G instead.
•
Is your line noisy? If there is static on your line, the modem has to
resend many blocks of data to insure accuracy. You must have a
clean line for maximum speed.
•
Are you downloading a compressed file with MNP 5 hardware
compression enabled? Since hardware data compression cannot
compress a file already compressed by an archiving program, the
transfer can be marginally slower with data compression enabled
than with it disabled.
•
Try entering the L8 (List Online Diagnostics) command in online
mode, making a screen print of the diagnostics listing, and
checking for parameters that may be unacceptable (number of
retrains, round trip delay, etc.).
Losing Data
54
•
If you are using data compression and a high speed serial port,
set the serial port baud rate to four times the data rate.
•
Make sure the flow control method you selected in software
matches the method selected in the modem. If you have a
Macintosh, you may have the wrong cable for hardware flow
control.
•
If you are running under Windows 3.1 and have a 16550AFN
UART, you may need to turn on the 16550’s data buffers and/or
replace the Windows serial driver, COMM.DRV.
•
Try entering the L8 (List Online Diagnostics) command in online
mode, making a screen print of the diagnostics listing, and
checking for parameters that may be unacceptable (number of
retrains, round trip delay, etc.).
Chapter 5 - Troubleshooting
Getting Garbage Characters on the Monitor
•
Your computer and the remote computer may be set to different
word lengths, stop bits, or parities. If you have connected at 8-N1, try changing to 7-E-1, or vice-versa, using your communications
software.
•
You may be experiencing line noise. Enable error correction, if it
is disabled, or hang up and call again; you may get a better
connection.
•
At speeds above 2400 bps, the remote modem might not use the
same transmission or error correction standards as your modem.
Try connecting at a slower speed or disabling error correction.
(With no error correction, however, line noise can cause garbage
characters.)
•
Try entering the L8 (List Online Diagnostics) command in online
mode, making a screen print of the diagnostics listing, and
checking for parameters that may be unacceptable (number of
retrains, round trip delay, etc.).
Fax and Communications Software Won’t Run at
the Same Time
Communications devices can be accessed by only one application at a
time. Under DOS or Windows 3.1x, you can run either your fax
software or your datacomm software, but not both at the same time,
unless you have a special communications device management
application, such as Multi-Tech’s Virtual Modem Driver. In Windows
95, you can have data and fax communication applications open at the
same time, but they cannot use the same modem at the same time.
In this test, data from your computer or terminal is sent to your
modem's transmitter, converted into analog form, looped back to the
receiver, converted into digital form and then received back at your
monitor for verification. No connection to the phone line is required.
See Figure 6-1 in Chapter 6.
55
MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
Chapter 6 - Testing Your Modem
Local Analog Loopback Test/V.54 Loop 3
In this test, data from your computer or terminal is sent to your
modem's transmitter, converted into analog form, looped back to the
receiver, converted into digital form and then received back at your
monitor for verification. No connection to the phone line is required.
See Figure 6-1.
Figure 6-1. Local Analog Loopback Test
The test procedure is as follows:
56
1.
Connect the modem to your computer. With your communication
software, set the desired baud rate.
2.
Type ATU0 (or ATU) and hit ENTER. This places your modem in
Analog Loopback mode, in the Originate mode. The modem is
now out of the Command mode and in a pseudo On-Line mode.
3.
Once you receive a connect message (if responses are enabled),
enter data from your keyboard. For this test, typing multiple upper
case "U" characters is a good way to send an alternating test
pattern of ones and zeros.
4.
For a more complete test, you should also test the modem in
Answer mode. To do this, you must “escape” from Originate mode
by entering an Escape Sequence (+++AT<CR> or
<BREAK>AT<CR>) . Then type ATU1 and hit ENTER to place
the modem in Analog Loopback mode, in the Answer mode. Then
repeat step 3.
Chapter 6 - Testing Your Modem
5.
Your modem passes this test if the data entered from your
keyboard are the same as the data received on your monitor. If
different data is appearing on your monitor, your modem is
probably causing the problem, although it could also be your
computer. If your modem passes this test, but you are receiving
errors while On-line, the remote modem or the phone line could
be at fault.
Note: All Loopback Tests operate at all speeds except 300 bps; and
disable error correction (&E0&W0<cr>) before engaging in loopback
tests.
Digital Loopback Test/V.54 Loop 2 (Local/Manual)
The Digital Loopback Test is an on-line test that loops data sent from
one modem across the phone line to another modem, then back to the
first modem. See Figure 6-2.
There are two ways to put a modem into Digital Loopback mode.
1.
Locally or Manually, described here in section 6.2.
2.
Remotely or Automatically, see section 6.3.
In this test the local modem is placed in Digital Loopback mode. Data
is entered and transmitted from the remote modem (which is not in
digital loopback mode), sent across the phone line to the local modem
and looped back to the remote modem.
The test procedure is as follows:
1.
Go into Terminal mode. Type AT and hit ENTER; you should get
an OK message.
2.
Dial the remote modem by entering the Dial command and the
phone number, to establish On-line mode.
3.
Type the Escape Sequence (+++AT<CR> or <BREAK>AT<CR>)
which brings your modem into Command mode, while still
maintaining the pseudo On-line mode with the remote modem.
4.
Type ATU3 from the local PC and hit ENTER. Once you receive
an OK message from your modem (if responses are enabled), the
local modem is placed in Digital Loopback mode.
57
MT2834ZPX Owner's Manual
5.
Data is typed from the remote keyboard. For this test, typing
multiple upper case "U" characters is a good way to send an
alternating test pattern of ones and zeros. The data received by
the local modem will enter its analog receiver, be converted to
digital data, be reconverted into analog, and then looped through
its transmitter back to the remote modem. Your modem passes
this test if the data entered from the remote keyboard is the same
as the data received on the remote monitor.
Figure 6-2. Digital Loopback Test (local/manual)
6.
When testing is complete, you may end the test by typing an
Escape Sequence (+++AT<CR> or <BREAK>AT<CR>) to bring
your modem into Command mode. The modem should respond
with an OK message. If you wish to stay On-line with the remote
modem for normal data transmission, type AT0 and hit ENTER. If
you wish to terminate the call, type ATH and hit ENTER to hang
up.
Digital Loopback Test/V.54 Loop 2 (Remote/
Automatic)
In this test, your modem must be On-line with another modem set up
to respond to a request for Digital Loopback (note that some modems
may not support Remote Loopback or may have this feature disabled).
The test procedure is as follows:
58
1.
Go into Terminal mode. Type AT and hit ENTER; you should get
an OK message.
2.
Dial the remote modem by entering the Dial command and the
phone number, to establish On-line mode.
Chapter 6 - Testing Your Modem
Note: The &T4 command must be set on the remote modem to run
this test.
3.
Type the Escape Sequence (+++AT<CR> or <BREAK>AT<CR>)
which brings your modem into Command mode, while still
maintaining the connection with the remote modem.
4.
Type ATU2 and hit ENTER. The local modem responds to this
command by transmitting an unscrambled marking signal, which
causes the remote modem to place itself in Digital Loopback
mode. Then the local modem exits Command mode and enters
pseudo On-line mode.
5. Type data from your keyboard. For this test, typing multiple upper
case "U" characters is a good way to send an alternating test
pattern of ones and zeros. The data received by the remote
modem will enter its analog receiver, be converted to digital data,
be reconverted into analog, and then looped through its
transmitter back to the local modem. Your modem passes this test
if the data entered from the local keyboard is the same as the
data received on your monitor.

The tone-dialing method combines two frequencies for each of the
twelve digits found on a Touch Tone dial pad. This method is referred
to as Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF) dialing. The four horizontal
rows on a Touch-Tone keypad use the four low frequencies (697, 770,
852, 941 Hz), while the three vertical columns use the three high
frequencies (1209, 1336, 1477 Hz). The generally accepted tone
frequency tolerance is +0.02%.
For example, the digit 4 would be dialed by combining two tone
frequencies. It would use the frequency 770 Hz from the second row,
and the frequency 1209 Hz from the first column. In another example,
the digit 9 would be dialed with the tone frequencies of 852 Hz and
1477 Hz.
The extended DTMF characters (A, B, C, D) are the high-end
frequencies (1633 Hz) defined on some telephone sets with a fourth
vertical column of buttons. This fourth column provides for extended
PBX control functions; the actual functions provided are dependent on
the PBX manaufacturer's implementation and feature set.

Communications Commission (FCC) rules. On the outside surface
of this equipment is a label that contains, among other
information, the FCC registration number and ringer equivalence
number (REN). If requested, this information must be provided to
the telephone company.
2.
As indicated below, the suitable jack (Universal Service Order
Code connecting arrangement) for this equipment is shown. If
applicable, the facility interface codes (FIC) and service order
codes (SOC) are shown.
An FCC-compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided
with this equipment. This equipment is designed to be connected
to the telephone network or premises wiring using a compatible
modular jack which is Part 68 compliant. See installation
instructions for details.
3.
The ringer equivalence number (REN) is used to determine the
quantity of devices which may be connected to the telephone line.
Excessive REN’s on the telephone line may result in the devices
not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most, but not all
areas, the sum of the REN’s should not exceed five (5.0). To be
certain of the number of devices that may be connected to the
line, as determined by the total REN’s, contact the telephone
company to determine the maximum REN for the calling area.
4.
If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the
telephone company will notify you in advance that temporary
discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance notice
isn’t practical, the telephone company will notify the customer as
soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of your right to file a
complaint with the FCC if you believe it is necessary.
5.
The telephone company may make changes in its facilities,
equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the
operation of the equipment. If this happens, the telephone
company will provide advance notice in order for you to make
necessary modifications in order to maintain uninterrupted
service.

NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the
limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy, and if not installed and used in
accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee
that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that of
which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
WARNING: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly
approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s
authority to operate this equipment.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for
any person to use a computer or other electronic device to send any
message via a telephone fax machine unless such message clearly
contains in a margin at the top or bottom of each page or the first page
of the transmission, the date and time it is sent and an identification of
the business or other entity, or other individual sending the message
and the telephone number of the sending machine or such business,
other entity, or individual. See the cover page of your fax software
manual for setup details.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is

Canadian Limitations Notice
Notice: The ringer equivalence number (REN) assigned to each
terminal device provides an indication of the maximum number of
terminals allowed to be connected to a telephone interface. The
termination of a interface may consist of any combination of devices
subject only to the requirement that the sum of the ringer equivalence
numbers of all the devices does not exceed 5.
Notice: The Industry Canada label identifies certificated equipment.
This certification means that the equipment meets certain
telecommunications network protective, operational and safety
requirements. The Industry Canada does not guarantee the equipment
will operate to the user’s satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is
permissible to be connected to the facilities of the local
telecommunications company. The equipment must also be installed
using an acceptable method of connection. The customer should be
aware that compliance with the above conditions may not prevent
degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized
Canadian maintenance facility designated by the supplier. Any repairs
or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or equipment
malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to
request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground
connections of the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic
water pipe system, if present, are connected together. This precaution
may be particularly important in rural areas.
Caution: Users should not attempt to make such connections
themselves, but should contact the appropriate electric inspection
authority, or electrician, as appropriate.
