of all, you should know what modem you are using. Right
click on My computer
then select Properties.
Select the Hardware
tab, then the Device
manager button. Click on Modem
to show the modem you have installed.
Next you need to get the latest drivers for your modem. Check your
modem manufacturer for an updated driver. You should also
flash your modem with the latest V90 code, if you have a V90
capable modem that is. You can find a list of manufacturers
Winmodems - Some of you may be using Winmodems. These are bad for many
reasons (e.g. they increase CPU usage) & you should
strongly consider purchasing a proper hardware modem. They
can be tweaked to some extent though. Winmodem
specific tweaks are mentioned where applicable. Thanks
to Tim Proffer for this info.
Once you've installed the latest drivers/updates you can proceed
onto the next step.
the Control Panel
then select Phone
& Modem options. Select the Modems
tab. Select your modem & click on the Properties
button. Select the Advanced
initialization commands field I suggest entering the
following Init string into the space provided (NOTE: The
strings below are for 3com/US Robotics modems, do NOT use it on non-3Com/USR modems, refer to your modem manual for
appropriate strings). You can find modem Init strings for
other brand modems at 56k.com. You should try to reference it with the appropriate version of
the ones recommended below.
US Robotics Courier owners
with a 25Mhz clock (not on earlier models) should use this AT%G1&F1&K3S15=2S11=38S27=16S0=0
