Chapter 1 Introduction
Safety Information
Shock Hazard
To avoid shock hazard:
The power cord and any other equipment to which this product is attached
must be connected to properly wired receptacles. Do not connect or disconnect any cables or perform installation, maintenance, or reconfiguration
of this product during an electrical storm.
When using telephone equipment, basic safety precautions should always
be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, and injury. Never
install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically
designed for wet locations.
Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone
line has been disconnected at the network interface. Use caution when
installing or modifying telephone lines. Avoid using a telephone (other
than a cordless type) during an electrical storm. There may be a remote
risk of electrical shock from lightning. Do not use the telephone to report a
gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.
Connecting the Modem
Do not connect the Modem to a digital PBX (switchboard) system, as damage to the Modem can occur. Modems are designed to function with analog
telephone lines, such as residential lines.
Do not connect the Modem to an ISDN line. In some areas, ISDN (digital)
lines are provided for residences and businesses. These lines may damage
the Modem.
☞
Note: The Modem is fully compatible with analog telephone
lines connected to a Digital Exchange. Digital Exchanges are used
in some areas to supply analog lines to homes and businesses.

Troubleshooting
4
This section describes a few problems that may be encountered when using the
Modem, and solutions to overcome them.
When I restart my computer, the Modem is not detected.
Ensure the Modem is turned on, and the serial cable is connected properly to a
COM port on the computer, then restart the computer.
The Modem doesn’t dial.
Ensure the Modem is turned on and connected to a working phone line. To
ensure the phone line is functioning properly, plug a telephone into the phone
wall jack and listen for a dial tone.
The Modem dials but doesn’t connect.
First, verify the communications software is configured to the correct COM port
and IRQ setting. Second, ensure the phone line is working properly (plug a telephone into the phone wall jack and listen for a dial tone).
☞
.
Note: To determine the COM port and IRQ setting used by the
Modem, select Start, Settings, Control Panel, then double-click
Modems. Select Diagnostics, then More Info.
The Modem reports a busy signal.
First, verify the Modem is connected directly to a wall phone jack. If the Modem
is a connected to a phone via a splitter, it will not function properly. Second,
ensure the numerical prefix *70 is not included before the access number provided by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The *70 prefix disables call waiting,
sending out a busy signal instead.

AT Commands
A
To access the Modem manually, use AT commands. AT commands can be sent to
the Modem from a computer running a communications program.
Command Format
All commands must begin with the AT prefix, followed by the parameter, and ending by pressing the Enter key on the keyboard. All commands can be entered in
either all upper– or all lower–case, but not upper– and lower–case mixed together.
A command entered without any parameters automatically specifies the same command with a parameter of “0.” The maximum length of a command is eight (8)
characters. The Modem does not count the AT prefix, carriage returns, or spaces.
For example, entering the command
ATH
causes the modem to hang up.
Basic AT Commands
In the following lists, the commands are in bold text, followed by a short functional description. Default settings are noted with an asterisk (*).

or follow by pressing the Enter key)

ITU–T V.90 Operation Commands
Three S-registers support K56flex, V.90, and V.34 connections. The S37 register is
used to control the upstream V.34 rate. The S38 register is used to control the maximum downstream speed at which the Modem attempts to connect. To disable V.90,
set S38 to 0. The S109 register is used to select between K56flex and V.90 protocols.

K56flex and V.90 Selection (S109)
Use this register to disable 56K connections, or to select between K56flex and V.90
protocols. The default setting (S109=1) will attempt K56flex, and then V.34,
depending upon the central site modem being called and the condition of the

Command Examples
The following list contains a few AT Command examples.
at&fs38=0s109=0 – disables ALL 56K connections.
at&fs38=1s109=1s37=14 – disables V.90 connections. The Modem attempts to
connect at K56flex rates, with the V.34 upstream rate limited to 21.6K bps.
at&fs38=1s109=2 – causes the Modem to attempt a V.90 connection only. If
V.90 is not achieved, it will fall back to V.34 rates.
at&fs38=10s109=2 – causes the Modem to attempt a V.90 connection at 40K
bps. It will fall back to slower speeds if it cannot achieve or maintain this rate.
As a suggested “init string” in the communications program, use:
at&fw2s109=2s38=1s37=14
