Modems are operated by a well-defined set of “AT Commands.” In many cases, the modem’s driver does a fine job of running things, and we don’t even see the command strings. However, you can “force” a modem to perform certain functions by entering the AT command string manually. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, and double-click the Modems icon. Highlight the modem in the General tab and click the Properties button. Click the Connection tab, and click the Advanced button. You can add the command string to the modem’s properties in the Extra Settings entry of the Advanced Connection Settings dialog. Remember to save your changes and reboot the PC if necessary.
