Chapter 1 – Introduction and Installation
Modem Installation
Step 1: Attach the Self-Adhesive Feet
The modem comes with a set of self-adhesive plastic feet, which you can optionally attach to the modem. To
install, simply peel them from their paper strip and press them into the recesses on the bottom of the modem.
Step 2: Connect the Modem to Your System
Turn off your computer. Place the modem in a convenient location, and then connect it to your computer’s serial
port, the phone line, AC power, and your phone.
RS232 Connection
Plug one end of the serial cable into the RS232 connector on the modem, and the other end into a
serial port connector on your computer, such as COM1 or COM2.
LINE Connection
Plug one end of the phone cable into the MT2834ZDX’s LINE jack and the other end into a phone line
wall jack.
Note: The LINE jack is not interchangeable with the PHONE jack. Do not plug the phone into the LINE
jack or the line cable into the PHONE jack.
PHONE Connection
You may optionally plug a telephone into the PHONE jack. This jack is provided as a convenience; you
may also plug a telephone into a duplex jack inserted into your wall jack.
POWER Connection
Plug the power supply module into an AC power outlet or power strip. Plug the power supply’s cable
into the POWER jack on the modem.
Note: Use only the power supply supplied with the MT2834ZDX. Use of any other power supply will
void the warranty and could damage the modem.
Power-On Test
Test the modem by turning it on (a power on/off switch is located on the right side). When you apply
power, the modem performs a diagnostic self-test, indicated by the speed indicators flashing in sequence for a second or two, after which the 28 indicator should light. If this does not happen, check that
the power switch is on, the power supply is solidly connected, and the AC outlet is live. If these
measures do not work, see the Troubleshooting chapter..

Chapter 1 – Introduction and Installation
Step 3: Install the Modem Driver
If you use Windows 98+, you must install the modem driver, which is installed using the Windows Plug and Play
feature. Follow the four-step procedure below. If you use another operating system, see the Appendix.
1. Make sure your modem is connected properly, and then turn on your computer. Windows should detect
your new modem and open the Install New Modem wizard.
1. Insert the system CD, and then click OK.
2. Windows installs and configures the modem.
3. Click Finish to exit.
For Windows NT, the Install New Modem wizard presents one additional prompt before Step 2. At this prompt,
select: Don’t detect my modem; I will select it from a list, and then click Next.
A dialog box with a list of manufacturers and a list of modem models appears. Select your modem. Continue with
Step 2 above.
Note: If Windows cannot identify your modem (for instance, if it identifies your modem as a “Standard Modem”),
click Change. A dialog box with a list of manufacturers and a list of modems appears.
Step 4: Install Data Communications Software
Data communications software is designed to send and receive messages. Multi-Tech includes PhoneTools
communications software with your modem. However, the modem will work with most data communications
software. To install PhoneTools, insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive; click the PhoneTools icon. You will be
asked to choose your language. The software automatically loads onto your PC.
Removing Your Old Modem from
Windows
When a new modem replaces another modem, the old modem installation remains in Windows after you install the
new modem, and the old modem is still selected in HyperTerminal and other Windows applications. Although you can
change the application connection descriptions one at a time, it is easier to force Windows applications to use the
new modem by removing the old modem from Windows.
1. Click the Start button, point to Settings, and click Control Panel.
2. Double-click the Modems icon to open the Modems Properties dialog box.
3. In the list box, select the old modem.
4. Click Remove, then click Close.
5. The next time you dial a HyperTerminal connection, it will select your new modem and ask you to confirm the
selection.

Chapter 2 – Operation
Chapter 2 – Operation
Front Panel
The MT2834ZDX has ten LED indicators on the front panel that indicate status, configuration, and activity:
Transmit Data. The TD LED lights when the modem is transmitting data to another modem. The state of the LED
matches the TD circuit on pin 2 of the RS-232C/V.24 interface.
Receive Data. The RD LED lights when the modem is receiving data from another modem. The state of the LED
matches that of the RD circuit on pin 3 of the RS-232C/V.24 interface.
Carrier Detect. The CD LED lights when the modem detects a valid carrier signal from another modem. It is on when
the modem is communicating with the other modem and off when the link is broken.
33,600 bps. The 33 LED lights by itself when the modem connects 33,600 bps operation. This LED also lights or
blinks in combination with the 14 LED to indicate speeds between 16,800 and 26,400 bps (see table).
14,400 bps. The 14 LED lights by itself when the modem connects at 14,400 bps. The 14 LED lights or blinks in
combination with the 28 LED to indicate speeds between 16,800 and 26,400 bps. It lights together with the 96 LED to
indicate a speed of 12,000 bps.
9600 bps. The 96 LED lights when the modem connects at 9600 bps. If no speed LED lights, the modem is operating
at less than 9600 bps.
Off-Hook. The OH LED lights when the modem is off-hook, which occurs when the modem is dialing, online, or
answering a call. The LED flashes when the modem pulse-dials.
Terminal Ready. The TR LED lights when a datacomm program initializes the modem. It means the modem is ready
for an outgoing or incoming call. It goes off when the datacomm program disconnects the COM port. When it goes
off, a connected modem will disconnect. The state of the TR LED matches that of the DTR circuit on pin 20 of the RS232C/V.24 interface.
Error Correction (V.42). The EC LED lights continuously when the modem is in error correction mode, and blinks
when compression is activated.
Fax. The FX LED lights when the modem is in fax mode.
Note: When you turn on the MT2834ZDX, the speed lights flash briefly as the modem does a self-test, then the LED
for the default modem baud rate lights. The default rate for the MT2834ZDX is 28,800 bps (33,600 bps for the ZDXb)
unless you select and store another baud rate. After a call, the LEDs for the connection’s baud rate remain lit until
another call is made or the modem is reset. If you connect at a rate under 9600 bps, all speed LEDs remain off after
the connection is broken, even though the modem is still turned on.
Speed Indicator Blink Rates
The 33, 14, and 96 speed indicators light singly or in combination to indicate data rates.

Chapter 4 – Troubleshooting
Chapter 4 – Troubleshooting
Your MultiModemZDX modem 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. The following
symptoms are typical of problems you may encounter:
•
None of the LEDs light when the modem is on.
•
The modem does not respond to commands.
•
The modem dials but cannot connect.
•
The modem disconnects while online.
•
The modem cannot connect when answering.
•
File transfer is slower than it should be.
•
Data is being lost.
•
There are garbage characters on the monitor.
•
Fax and data programs can’t run at the same time.
If you experience problems, please check the following possibilities before calling Technical Support
(see Appendix C).
None of the LEDs Light When the Modem Is On
When you turn on the ZDX, the LED indicators on the front panel should flash briefly as the modem runs a selftest. If the LEDs remain off, the modem is probably not receiving power.
•
Make sure the modem’s power switch is on, especially if you normally turn on the modem by turning on a
power strip.
•
If the power supply is plugged into a power strip, make sure the power strip is plugged in and its power
switch is on. Make sure the power supply module is firmly connected to the modem and to the wall outlet or
power strip.
•
If the power strip is on and the modem switch is on, try moving the modem power supply to another outlet on
the power strip.
•
Test that the outlet is live by plugging a lamp into it.
•
The modem or power supply may be defective. If you have another Multi-Tech modem, try swapping
modems. If the problem goes away, the first modem or power supply may be defective. Call Technical
Support for assistance.
CAUTION: Do not under any circumstance replace the power supply module with one designed for another
product, as it can damage the modem and void your warranty.
The Modem Does Not Respond to Commands
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure the modem is plugged in and turned on. (See “None of the Indicators Light when the Modem Is
On.”)
Make sure you are issuing the modem commands from a data communication program, either manually in
terminal mode or automatically by configuring the program. (You cannot send commands to the modem
from the DOS prompt.)
Make sure you are in terminal mode in your data communication program, then type AT and press ENTER.
If you get an OK response, your connections are good, and the problem likely is in the connection setup in
your communication program.
Try resetting your modem by turning it off and on.
If you don’t get an OK, the problem may still be in the communication program. Make sure you have done
whatever is necessary in your software to make a port connection. Not all communication programs connect
to the COM port automatically. Some connect when the software loads and remain connected until the
program terminates. Others can disconnect without exiting the program. The modem’s TR indicator lights to
show that the software has taken control of the modem through the COM port.

Your communication program settings might not match the physical port the modem is connected to. The
serial cable might be plugged into the wrong connector—check your computer documentation to make sure.
Or you might have selected a COM port in the program other than the one the modem is physically
connected to—compare the settings in the program to the physical connection.
If the modem is on, the cable is plugged into the correct port, the communication program is configured
correctly, and you still don’t get an OK, the fault might be in the serial cable. Make sure it is firmly connected
at both ends.
Is this the first time you have used the cable? If so, it may not be wired correctly. Check the cable
description on the package to make sure the cable is the right one for your computer.
Peripheral expansion cards, such as sound and game cards, can 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.
If you use Windows 98, right-click on My Computer, select Properties from the menu, click on the Device
Manager tab, double-click on Ports, then double-click the communications port your modem is connected
to. In the port’s Properties dialog box, click 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. 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 documentation for the device.
If you use Windows NT 4.0, select in turn Start, Programs, Administrative Tools (Common), and
Windows NT Diagnostics. In the Windows NT Diagnostics dialog box, click on the Resources tab to see
address and IRQ assignments.
The serial port might be defective. If you have another serial port, install the modem on it, change the COM
port setting in your software, and try again.
The modem might be defective. If you have another Multi-Tech modem, try swapping modems. If the
problem goes away, the first modem is possibly defective. Call Technical Support for assistance (see
Appendix C).
The Modem Dials But Cannot Connect
There can be several reasons the ZDX 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. 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 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 might 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 might 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 might not recognize the dial
tone and might treat it as an error. Make sure your modem’s square wave ring detection is turned on
(&RD1). Check the 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, or it
might 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. To change the dial prefix
in Windows 95 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.
Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. MT2834ZDX User's Guide
21
Chapter 4 – Troubleshooting
•
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 a 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.
The Modem Disconnects While Online
•
If you have Call Waiting on the same line as your modem, it can interrupt your connection each time
someone tries to call you. If you have Call Waiting, disable it before each call. In most telephone areas in
North America, 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 Windows Terminal, select Settings | Modem Commands. To change it 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 order a separate line for the modem.
•
Check for loose connections between the modem and the computer, the telephone jack, and AC power.
•
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.
The Modem Cannot Connect When Answering
•
Autoanswer might be disabled. Turn on autoanswer in your datacomm program or send the command
ATS0=1 to your modem in terminal mode.
File Transfer Is Slower Than It Should Be
•
You might have an older UART. For best throughput, install a 16550AFN UART or a Multi-Tech ISI serial
port card.
•
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.).
Data Is Being Lost
•
If you are using data compression and a high speed serial port, set the serial port baud rate to four times the
data rate.
•
Your UART might not be reliable at serial port speeds over 9600 bps or 19,200 bps. Turn off data
compression, reset your serial port speed to a lower rate, or replace your serial port with a faster one.
•
Make sure the flow control method you selected in software matches the method selected in the modem. If
you are using the modem with a Macintosh, you might have the wrong cable for hardware flow control.
•
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 4 – Troubleshooting
There Are 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.
•
4 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 next 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 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 Data Programs Can’t Run at the Same Time
•
Communications devices can be accessed by only one application at a time. In Windows 95, 98, and NT
4.0, you can have separate data and fax communication applications open at the same time, but they cannot
use the same modem at the same time.

Appendix A – Regulatory Compliance
Regulatory Requirements for Canada
The following requirements are established under section 69.3 of the Telecommunications Act for purposes of
section 5 of the Telecommunications Apparatus Regulations.
Registered equipment shall bear the following identifying marks, and the Declaring Party shall ensure that these
marks are permanently affixed to the equipment:
(a) The registration number — Specifications of this mark are given in the document: Self-Marking of the
Certification/Registration Number on Terminal Equipment — Application Procedure and Agreement;
and
(b) The model identification number under which the product was registered.
A statement of compliance with Industry Canada requirements, such as the one given below, shall accompany
each unit of equipment whether registered under this procedure or previously certified:
"This product meets the applicable Industry Canada technical specifications"
For terminal equipment intended for connection to loop-start or ground-start interfaces, the Ringer Equivalence
Number (REN) must be calculated as per Section 1.8 of CS-03, Part I. A REN higher than that determined may
be assigned by manufacturers to allow for production variations. The REN must be marked on the terminal
equipment itself or added to the note below. A note similar to the following shall accompany each unit of
equipment whether registered under this procedure or previously certified:
"The Ringer Equivalence Number is an indication of the maximum number of devices allowed to be
connected to a telephone interface. The termination on an interface may consist of any combination
of devices subject only to the requirement that the sum of the RENs of all the devices does not
exceed five".
Pursuant to section 69.3 of the Telecommunications Act, Certified or self-declared TE will bear a valid identifying
certification or registration number. The marking of the certification or registration number on the product shall be
as follows:
(a) TAC holder/DP will be responsible for permanently affixing the certification/registration number on the
TE. The certification/registration number (see example below) identifies Certified or self-declared TE to
the public, representatives of the telecommunications common carriers, the Department, and other
interested parties. The letter height must be no less than 1.5 mm and the letters must be legible without
magnification.
(b) For integrated devices, e.g. a modem or one that is intended to become a sub-assembly of host
equipment e.g. a data terminal, computer etc. that are designed to interface directly with the network,
the certification/registration number shall be affixed to the integrated device itself.
(c) The certification/registration number for a packaged TE will denote that the total package has been
registered. However, the marking will normally be placed on that unit of the package, which connects to
the network. For example, in a PBX, the marking will be placed on the common equipment, which
connects to the network, rather than on plug-in components which may be added later. The Terminal
Equipment List will show the common equipment but not the standard station apparatus or any
proprietary station apparatus.
(d) The marking format of the certification/registration number is as follows:
IC: XXXXXX-YYYYYYYY
Where:
• The letters "IC" have no other meaning or purpose than to identify the Industry Canada
certification/registration number, and
• “XXXXXX-YYYYYYYY” is the certification/registration number; “XXXXXX” is the Company
Number¹ (CN); it consists of up to six alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) assigned by
Industry Canada; and “YYYYYYYY” is the Unique Product Number (UPN); it consists of
up to eight alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9) assigned by the applicant. Other
characters, (such as & # *-) may not be used. Alphabetic characters must be capitalized.
Note: The Company Number of registered equipment ends with an alphabetic character.
Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. MT2834ZDX User's Guide
27
Appendix A – Regulatory Compliance
(e) Certification Numbers granted prior to the implementation of the above marking format are
grandfathered.
(i) For previously certified TE, the self-marking format shall consist of the old certification number preceded
by “IC:” For example, if the certification number is “123 1234 A”, then the self-mark would read “IC: 123
1234 A”.
(ii) For a new model that is registered to a family of previously certified TE, the self-marking format shall be:
IC: XXXXXX-ZZZZZZZZ
Where:
• “XXXXXX” is the Company Number, as in (d) above ; and
• “ZZZZZZZZ” is either the old certification number minus the old company number, or a
new Unique Product Number assigned by the applicant. For example, if a new model is
registered to the family of products with certification number “123 1234 A”, and that the
Company Number for the registration is “123A”, then the self-mark for this new model
would read “IC: 123A-1234 A”. If the applicant decides to replace “1234 A” with a new
UPN, say “5678", then the self-mark would read “IC: 123A-5678".
Industry Canada
This Class B digital apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian Interference-Causing Equipment
Regulations.
