56K modem no response about use an "init string"
Posted on 1998-04-09
I have bought a new Zoom 56k modem (model 2929) and it claims it can support 56kflex/V.90.
After I installed it, I found that the connection speed is unstable. Somtimes I can connect with 48k but most of the time is 50k. However, when the connection speed is 50k, I can't load any webpages. I can do whatever I like when the connection speed is 48k. I have asked this question to the tech. support of Zoom. The reply is that they told me to add an extra string "AT&FS202=32+MS=56,0,40000,48000S95=1". But when I added in the string, the result went even worse. Everytime I double-click to connect to my isp, an error message pops up saying that:
"Error 630: The computer is not receiving a response from the modem.
Check that the modem is plugged in, and if necessary, turn the modem off, and then turn it back on."
Of course even I turn the modem off and on, the result is the same.
When I remove the string, the modem goes normal, that is, I can connect to my isp. (of course the problem I mentioned still exists)
Please give help......
