really simple modem question


This may be a silly question...

how long should the "initialising modem" stage of dialup take???

(i've gone from "what modem?" to "oh that modem, no it doesnt work" to "modem ready")

Shouldn't take very long at all, unless it's either sending the wrong commands, the program is not configured correctly for your modem, etc, etc.

I had a modem that initialised for ages, once. It turned out that I had the com port settings all screwy...?

open minicom and send it a ATZ, see if it responds with an 'ok'
