Modem Volume and Initialization Strings

Guys and Gals,

I have Windows XP and I have a problem with my modem. When go to device manager and click on the properties for my modem, it shows the modem volume off. However, when it dials out I can hear the modem dialing out and communicating to our ISP. Is there something I am missing? Do I need to turn something else off?

Also, I input an initialization string in the advanced options "I think" of the modem under device manager. Before it forced the modem at 26400 but I am still getting a higher speed with the initialization string inputted. Do I need to put the string somewhere else?

Thanks,

Kerry

Yo,

Usually the modem volume is set in the Extra Settings of the modem properties in the Control Panel and it's the same for the Init String but for the volume I don't remember the exact letters...sorry.

I work as a Helpdesk Technician and that's what we do for connection problems (Init String)

A great site for more info about modems:

Here are strings you can add to the Extra initialisationstring:

M0 Speaker always off
M1 Speaker on during connection
M2 Speaker always on (very noisy)
L0 Lowest volume
L1 Lowest volume (redundant)
L2 Medium volume
L3 Maximum volume


Obviously with m0 there is no need for any L setting.
