View Full Version : Muzzle your modem - Need to know....

03-02-2003, 10:05 PM
In this month’s PC World on page 105-106 there was a help how to on turning sound off on your modem, (my OS is XP) it talked about the “Extra Initialisation commands” box. I changed my one to atm0 and it worked- no sound. And I know that if I leave it blank there will be sound. But when I put back what was originally in the box my modem dose not work.

Is this “Extra Initialisation commands” box JUST for sound or have I possibly deleted some semi important code that has other use??????? I used to have tms+90,,,,,48000 in the box can anyone tell me what this means is it just for the sound??

I would really be thankful for the help!!

I think you must have actually had at+ms=90,,,,,48000 or at+ms=v90,,,,,48000 which I think means using v90 mod at max speed 48000baud? something like that anyway. - ie the modulation, compression, and speed limitation(s) for the modem and is used to force the modem to connect with a certain protocol at some maximum speed.

Someone else will be bound to further enlighten us both.

Cheers, Babe. :-)

You would have had +MS=V90,,,,,48000
This forces v90 and gives a max speed of 48000
If it connects OK without it and you don't get disconnects leave it out, but if your phone lines are sub standard you may need something there to limit your speed.

The full command format for Conexant HCF is -
+MS=<modulation>,<automode>,<min tx rate>,<max tx rate>,<min rx rate>,<max rx rate>
What you had was just the last one, max rx rate of 48000
If you leave the others out you must still add the commas,
eg +ms=v90,,,,44000,52000 gives minimum of 44,000bps and a maximum of 52k

If you just add +MS=v34 this Disables V90 and gives a max speed of 33k

Just put a bit of masking tape over the piezo speaker, I sure on TV they will shortly advertise 3db, 6db, 12db, tape just for you
