Chapter 1 – Description and Specifications
Product Description
The MultiModem ZPX V.92 internal modem provides high-speed data transfer and fax capabilities. The
MT9234ZPX-UPCI is a universal PCI bus card that operates in either a 3.3 or 5V slot. The MT9234ZPX-PCIE is a PCI
Express bus card that operates in a 3.3V slot.
It includes a built-in processor to enhance performance and data throughput. The MultiModem ZPX is compatible
with the ITU-T V.92 protocol that provides quick connections, downstream transmissions at speeds up to 56K
bps*, and upstream transmissions speeds up to 48K bps when connected to V.92-compatible Internet Service
Providers. Upstream transmissions and transmissions between client modems are limited to 33.6 Kbps. Upstream
transmissions to non-V.92-compatible ISPs and downstream transmissions that are converted more than once on
the telephone line also are limited to 33.6K bps.
Note: Although these modems are capable of 56 Kbps download performance, line impairments, public
telephone infrastructure flaws, and other external technological factors currently prevent connections
from reaching this maximum 56 Kbps speed.

Chapter 3 - Hardware Installation
Installing your MultiModem
Note: If you are using Windows, use Windows Installer to install drivers before installing the MultiModem into a
PCI slot. Refer to Chapter 2 – Windows Installation for more information.
If you are using Linux, install the hardware and then install the drivers. Refer to Chapter 4 – Linux
Installation for more information.
To install the card into your PCI-bus computer, follow the steps presented below.
1. Turn off your computer.
2. Remove the power cord and any peripheral equipment connected to the computer. Failing to do so may
damage both the MultiModem and your system. Do not power up the system until instructed to do so.
3. Remove the cover of your computer as instructed in your computer’s documentation.
Before handling the MultiModem, discharge any static in your body by touching a piece of
grounded metal such as the computer chassis. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the release of
stored static electricity that can damage electrical circuitry or components. Static electricity
is often stored in your body and discharged when you come in contact with an object of a
different potential.
Perform the procedure described in this section only at an ESD workstation using an
antistatic wrist strap. If such a station is not available, you can provide some ESD
protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap and attaching it to a metal ground
screw (lug).
4. Carefully remove the card from its antistatic bag. Handle it only by the mounting bracket and edges. Do not
touch the gold-plated connectors along the bottom edge. (You may want to save packaging for possible future
use.)
5. Remove the slot cover for the unused PCI slot where you will install the MultiModem. Retain the screw. Refer
to your computer’s manual for instructions on removing the slot cover.
6. If installing a MT9234ZPX-PCIe in a low profile machine, you will need to change the mounting bracket to the
low profile mounting bracket that shipped with your card.
7. Install the card into the selected expansion slot in the same manner as any other add-on card. Refer to your
computer’s manual for instructions on adding cards. The card’s retaining bracket should be flush against the
system chassis.
8. Fasten the retaining bracket to the computer chassis with the screw you removed from the slot cover and
replace cover on the computer.

equipment connected to public telephone systems.
Changing the Voice Jumper
The speaker jumper is next to the external speaker jack.
●
●
The factory default position of the voice jumper is set for a stereo speaker or sound card. A jumper plug
covers both pins of the jumper. 
To use the modem with a monophonic external speaker, remove the jumper plug from the jumper pins. You
can store it by placing it on one jumper pin. 
Connecting a Phone (Optional)
To use a phone on the same line as the modem:
Plug the phone cord into the modem’s PHONE jack.
Note: The LINE and PHONE jacks are not interchangeable. Do not plug the phone into the LINE jack or the line
cable into the PHONE jack.
Connecting a Microphone and Headphone (Optional)
To use your modem with voicemail, connect it to a microphone and external speaker, headphone or sound card.
You can use the microphone to record voicemail messages and with a speakerphone. Use the speaker or
headphone to play back messages or as a speakerphone.
Use an unamplified microphone and headphone with a stereo 3.58mm (9/64-inch) mini plug. Do not use a
monophonic microphone.
Plug the microphone into the MIC jack.
MultiModem ZPX UPCI/PCIe User Guide

MultiModem ZPX UPCI/PCIe User Guide
Chapter 4 – Linux Installation
Linux uses a native driver contained in the kernel with MultiModem ZPX modems.
Verifying that Linux Detected the Modem
When using your modem with Linux kernel 2.6.xx, install the hardware and then verify if Linux can detect it. To
verify that the Linux detected the modem:
1. Logon to the system as root.
2. Send uname -a to check with kernel version is running. Linux returns a response similar to:
[root@armadillo ~]# uname -a
Linux armadillo.net 2.6.18-8.el5 #1 SMP Thu Mar 15 19:57:35 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386
GNU/Linux
This example shows a system running kernel 2.6.18-8.el5.
Identifying Ports
When Linux detects the modem, it assigns two new ports to the system. Only the first COM port is used to access
the modem. If you use the second port, the modem will not respond to AT commands.
To see how many ports the system detected on boot
1. Send dmesg |grep -i tty. Linux returns a response similar to:
[root@armadillo ~]# dmesg |grep -i tty
serial8250: ttyS1 at I/O 0x2f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
00:0f: ttyS1 at I/O 0x2f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
0000:03:00.0: ttyS0 at MMIO 0xcdeffc00 (irq = 169) is a 16550A
0000:03:00.0: ttyS2 at MMIO 0xcdeffe00 (irq = 169) is a 16550A
Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
Linux labels the ports assigned to your modem as follows. Note that the IRQ and the I/O address might be
different in your system.
0000:03:00.0: ttyS0 at MMIO 0xcdeffc00 (irq = 169) is a 16550A
0000:03:00.0: ttyS2 at MMIO 0xcdeffe00 (irq = 169) is a 16550A
2. Record the port label information.
Verifying that the Modem Works
To confirm if the modem works, use the Linux minicom terminal emulation
1. Enter minicom -s to bring the minicom into configuration mode. The returned response will be similar to:
[root@armadillo ~]# minicom -s
minicom: WARNING: configuration file not found, using defaults

Chapter 6 – Remote Configuration
Remote configuration allows you to configure your modem anywhere in your network from one location. With
password-protected remote configuration, you can issue AT commands to a remote modem for maintenance or
troubleshooting as if you were on site.
Configuring a Remote Modem
Use the following steps when you have established a connection by the local or the remote modem.
Note: The remote computer must be running and a communication program must be ready for a data
connection.
1. Establish a data connection with the remote modem.
2. Send three remote configuration escape characters followed by AT and the setup password, and press Enter.
For example, %%%ATMTSMODEM.
You have four tries to enter the correct password before being disconnected. If the password is correct, the
remote modem responds with OK.
3. Send AT commands to configure the remote modem. Refer to the AT Command Guide for more information.
4. Save the new configuration by typing AT&W0 and pressing Enter.
5. Type ATO and press Enter to exit remote configuration. You can now break the connection in the normal way.
Changing the Setup Password
Multi-Tech modems are shipped with a default setup password (MTSMODEM). Because anyone who has the User
Guide knows the default setup password, you should change the password.
1. Open a data communications program such as HyperTerminal.
2. Type AT#SMTSMODEM (or AT#Sxxxxxxxx if you have replaced the MTSMODEM password with xxxxxxxx) and
press Enter. The modem responds with OK if the setup password is correct and ERROR if it is wrong.
3. Type AT#S=xxxxxxxx, where xxxxxxxx stands for the password, and then press Enter. The password can
include any keyboard character, and can be up to eight characters long. The modem responds with OK. The
new password is saved automatically.
Caution: Passwords are case-sensitive.
MultiModem ZPX UPCI/PCIe User Guide

Chapter 6 – Remote Configuration
Changing the Remote Escape Character
To further improve security, you can change a remote modem’s remote configuration escape character either
locally or remotely. The remote configuration escape character is stored in register S9. The factory default is 37,
which is the ASCII code for the percent character (%). Setting S9 to 0 (zero) disables remote configuration entirely.
Caution: If you change the S9 to 0 remotely, you won’t be able to change it back remotely.
1. Establish a remote configuration link with the remote modem as described in Configuring a Remote Modem.
2. Type ATS9=n, where n is the ASCII code for the new remote configuration escape character, and then press
Enter.
3. Save the new value by typing AT&W and pressing Enter.
4. Type ATO and press Enter to exit remote configuration.

If your modem is not operating correctly, check the following before contacting Technical Support.
●
Modem does not respond to commands
●
Modem cannot connect when dialing
●
Modem disconnects while online
●
Modem cannot connect when answering
●
File transfer is slower than it should be
●

Modem Does Not Respond to Commands
1. Verify that you are sending commands through 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.
2. Verify you are in terminal mode in your data communications program, then type E1 and press Enter.
●
If you get an OK response from your modem, your connections are good and the problem likely is in the
connection setup in your communications software.
●
If you don’t get an OK, confirm that your port is properly configured the port through your
communications program. Some communications programs disconnect without exiting the program. If
this is the case, try issuing the software’s connection command. If more than one communications
program is open, they may conflict with each other. Make sure all other communications programs are
closed, and then try to make the connection again.
3. Make sure the COM port you chose during setup matches the COM port set in your communications software.
4. Another expansion card, such as a sound or game card, might use the same COM port, memory address, or
interrupt request (IRQ) as your modem. Look for conflicts with other devices installed on your computer.
Resources are assigned at power-up by the computer’s BIOS. If the resources assigned to the MultiModem
conflict with the resources of another device, change the resources of the second device. Change the port
used by the conflicting device to resolve the conflict. Refer to the device’s documentation to determine if you
need to change switches or jumpers on the conflicting device.
5. If you have another Multi-Tech modem, try swapping modems. If the problem goes away, contact Technical
Support at https://support.multitech.com for assistance.

Appendix A - Troubleshooting
Modem Cannot Connect When Dialing
There can be several reasons the modem fails to make a connection. Possibilities include:
●
no physical connection to a phone 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
●
poor line conditions
Use extended result codes to narrow the list. Extended result codes are enabled by default. If they have been
disabled, include V1X4 in the modem’s initialization string, or in terminal mode enter ATV1X4 and press Enter.
When you dial again, the modem reports the call’s progress.
●
If the modem reports NO DIALTONE, check that the modem’s phone line cable is connected to both the
modem’s LINE jack (not the PHONE jack) and the phone wall jack. If the cable looks secure, try replacing it. If
that doesn’t work, the problem might be in your building’s phone installation. To test the building installation,
plug a phone into your modem’s phone wall jack and listen for a dial tone. If you hear a dial tone, your
modem might be installed behind a corporate phone system (PBX) with an internal dial tone that sounds
different from the normal dial tone. In that case, the modem might not recognize the dial tone and might
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.
●
If the modem reports BUSY, the other number might be busy, in which case you should try again later.
However, it might indicate that you have failed to add a 9, the prefix to the phone number if you must dial 9
for an outside line.
●
If you must dial 9, include it in the modem’s dial prefix to dial it automatically, for example,
ATDT9, (note the comma, which inserts a pause before the number is dialed). If you insert the 9, into the
dial prefix, you do not have to include it in each directory entry.
●
To change the dial prefix in HyperTerminal, select Connect from the Call menu, click Dialing Properties,
and type 9 in the local and long distance boxes in How I dial from this location.
●
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 there is no answer on the remote end, the modem reports NO CARRIER. You might have dialed a wrong
number and a person answered 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. Try calling the number on your phone. If you hear harsh sounds, then another
modem is answering the call, and the modems might be having problems negotiating because of modem
incompatibilities or line noise. Try connecting at a lower speed.
●
Poor line conditions can affect the connection. When using V.34 or V.32 client-to-client connections in poor
conditions, setting S38=0 may result in better performance.
Modem Disconnects While Online
●
20
If you are not using modem on hold, call waiting can interrupt your connection when someone tries to call
you. If you have call waiting service, disable it before each call. In most phone areas in North America, you can
disable call waiting by preceding the phone number with *70 (verify this value with your phone company).
MultiModem ZPX UPCI/PCIe User Guide
Appendix A - Troubleshooting
●
Include the call waiting disabling code in the modem’s dial prefix, for example, ATDT*70, (note the comma,
which inserts a pause before the number is dialed). To change the dial prefix in HyperTerminal, select Connect
from the Call menu, 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 and the phone jack.
●
You might have had a poor connection because of line conditions or the problem might have originated on
the other end of the line. Try again.
●
Your ISP might 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.
Modem Cannot Connect When Answering
●
The default DTR Control command (&D2) inhibits autoanswer. To enable autoanswer, change DTR Control to
&D0, and make sure &Q0, &Q5, or &Q6 is also set. For more information, see the &D command in the AT
Commands Reference Guide. For information on changing the modem’s default configuration, see “Install and
Configure Your Software” in Chapter 2.
●
Autoanswer might be disabled. Turn on autoanswer in your communications program or send the command
ATS0=1 (ATS0=2 if you have caller ID service) 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, 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.
●
Does your Internet service provider (ISP) use the same 56K protocol as your modem? The default setting of
your modem is to connect using either the V.92 or the V.90 protocol, depending on which one the ISP’s
modem is using. If your ISP uses the V.90 protocol, the maximum speed you will be able to upload at is 33,600
bps. Check with your ISP to see which protocols it supports.
●
Are you trying to send a file to another client modem? If so, then your maximum possible connect speed is
33,600 bps. You can upload at speeds up to 48,000 bps only when connected to an ISP that supports the V.92
protocol.
●
Try entering the I11 command in online mode or the &V command in command mode to display information
about the last connection, making a screen print of the connection statistics, and checking for parameters that
might be unacceptable.
MultiModem ZPX UPCI/PCIe User Guide
21
Appendix A - Troubleshooting
Data Is Lost
●
If you are using data compression and a high speed serial port, set the serial port baud rate to two to six times
the data rate.
●
Make sure the flow control method you selected in software matches the method selected in the modem (see
AT commands &K and \Q.)
●
Try entering the I11 command in online mode or the &V command in command mode to display information
about the last connection, making a screen print of the connection statistics, and checking for parameters that
might be unacceptable. To display information about the present configuration, you must use the escape
sequence, +++, to ensure command mode while still on line. To return to on line mode, set ATO.
Garbage Characters on the Monitor
●
Your computer and the remote computer might be set to different word lengths, stop bits, or parities. If you
have connected at 8-N-1, try changing to 7-E-1, or vice-versa, using your communication software.
●
You might be experiencing line noise. Enable error correction, if it is disabled, or hang up and call again; you
might get a better connection the second time.
●
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 I11 command in online mode or the &V command in command mode to display information
about the last connection, making a screen print of the connection statistics, and checking for parameters that
might be unacceptable. To display information about the present configuration, you must use the escape
sequence, +++, to ensure command mode while still on line. To return to on line mode, set ATO.
The Modem Doesn’t Work with Caller ID
●
Caller ID information is transmitted between the first and second rings, so if autoanswer is turned off (S0=0)
or if the modem is set to answer after only one ring (S0=1), the modem will not receive Caller ID information.
Check your initialization string, and if necessary change it to set the modem to answer after the second ring
(S0=2).
●
Make sure that you have Caller ID service from your phone company.
Fax and Data Software Can’t Run at the Same Time
●
Communication devices can be accessed by only one application at a time. In Windows 2000 and higher, you
can have data and fax communication applications open at the same time, but they cannot use the same
modem at the same time.
Voice Functions Don’t Work
To verify the voice circuits:
1.
Verify that all connecting telephone, microphone, and speaker cables are undamaged and firmly connected
to the correct jacks.
2.
Retry whatever action was not working.
3. If the problem persists, try the voice mail test; if that doesn’t work, and if you have a microphone and speaker
connected to the MultiModem, try the loopback and speakerphone tests, which do not require special
software.

Appendix C – Upgrading Modem Firmware
Your modem is controlled by semi-permanent firmware, which is stored in flash memory. Multi-Tech's firmware
remains stored in memory when the modem is turned off and can be upgraded as new features are added.
Checking the Modem Firmware Version
Check the current firmware version to determine if an update is needed:
1. Run a terminal program, such as HyperTerminal.
2. In terminal window, type AT&F. Even if you cannot see the AT&F command on your screen, be sure to type it
completely, and then press Enter. If the modem does not respond with OK, repeat the AT&F command.
3. Now type ATI4, press Enter, and record your results. The model number and firmware version should appear
similar to that shown below. In the example below, the firmware version is 1.032d.
Agere OCM v.92 MT9234ZPX-UPCI Internal Data/Fax Modem version 1.02d.
Identifying the Current Firmware Version
Identify the current version of your modem’s firmware at the Multi-Tech Web site. If your modem already has the
current firmware, there is no need to upgrade it.
1. Go to http://www.multitech.com/setup/product.go and select your model from the Product drop down list.
2. Click Firmware. The firmware zip file name contains the version number. For example, IEQG102E.zip, indicates
version 102E.
3. Compare the version numbers.
●
If the firmware version number matches the firmware version number on your modem, your modem does
not need to be upgraded.
●
If the current firmware version number is greater than the firmware version on your modem needs to be
upgraded.
Warning: The first digit of the new firmware must match the first digit of the old firmware, or the modem may
not work properly (for example, if your current firmware version is 4.16, replace it only with 4.xx
firmware, not 6.xx firmware).
Upgrading Firmware on Windows
Installing the Flash Wizard Utility
From modem firmware page selected above:
1. If you are not on the page for your modem go to http://www.multitech.com/setup/product.go and select the
model from the Product drop down list.
2. Click Software.
3. Click the Flash Wizard utility link and click Open or Run the file.
4. Click Next to start through the Flash Wizard installation. Note the folder where the Flash Wizard will be
installed; you’ll need to extract the upgrade file to the same location.
5. Click Next and then click Finish.
MultiModem ZPX UPCI/PCIe User Guide

Appendix C – Upgrading Modem Firmware
Extracting the Upgrade Files
1. Click Firmware and then click the firmware upgrade link.
2. Click Open and then click Extract.
3. Select the folder where you installed the Flash Wizard and click Extract. The default folder is C:\Program
Files\Multi-Tech Systems\Flash Wizard.
4. Note the name of the new firmware.
Clearing Your Stored Parameters
Before you flash your modem, record the parameters that are currently stored in it, so you can reprogram it after
flashing. After you have recorded them, send the AT&F command to reset the modem to clear the stored parameters.
1. Run your favorite terminal program, such as HyperTerminal.
2. In the program’s terminal window, type AT&V and press Enter to list your modem’s current parameters.
3. Record your parameters by saving the screens and sending them to your printer.
4. Type AT&W1Z and press Enter to clear your stored parameters and reset your modem to factory default.
5. Close the terminal program.
Upgrading the Modem’s Firmware
Warning:
Never install an older version of firmware over a newer version. This destroys the flash PROM! If the
flash PROM is destroyed, the modem must be sent in for repair.
1. Click Start | Programs | Flash Wizard to launch the Flash Wizard. The Identifying Devices dialog box is
displayed as Flash Wizard locates and identifies the devices connected to your system.
Note:
If the message ERROR: No valid devices detected is displayed, verify that the modem is turned on
and that all cables are correctly and securely attached. Verify that the terminal application or
software application is turned off.
2. Select the modem to be upgraded, and then click Next.
3. Select the port to be upgraded and the appropriate .HEX file, and then click Next.
Note:
Do not use FLASHLDR.HEX. This file is used internally by Flash Wizard.
Caution: If the upgrade is disrupted at this state, your modem may become inoperable. Wait for Next to
become active before proceeding.
Programming Complete appears and Next becomes active when the flash upgrade is complete.
4. Click Next to continue.
5. Click Finish to exit the Flash Wizard.
Restoring Your Parameters
Your modem has been upgraded. Open your terminal program to reprogram your modem parameters or to
confirm the upgrade by typing ATI in the terminal window and pressing Enter.
