NT buggers modems up

Iam trying to fix a problem using laplink 2000 call back feauture, basically i need the modem to start up with a s10 value of >100

Iam using a 56K 3Com USR internal modem.
Ive set this using
at&w&w1 - writes to both NVRAMS

then doing a atz0 (reset to power up setting) the s10 reg equals 100

The above works in windows 95, BUT in NT the S10 reg after a cold boot is reset to the factory setting - 14. If I logon and type atz0. It then gets changed to 100.

help, is there a way of initialising the modem with out a user signing on and after the machine is cold booted in NT.

Maybe you could run a login script to perform this at each login...
Configure the "extra settings" within the modem-setup to send 'S10=100' to the modem.

NT will first send 'AT&F' to the modem,
to reset to "factory" settings,
and then NT will send 'S10=100',
to customize to your settings.
Then, NT will send 'ATDTxxx-xxxx'.

How about writing a small app to initialise the modem by writing direct to the COM port and setting windows to run this on boot?

Hold on. You're using laplink 2000?? This is an NT app right? It does have an option to send *IT'S* very own *INIT STRINGS* if yes... then set it to ATZ0 and under extra settings in the modem setup, put ATZ0 too...
