Before getting started you must disable remote communication in your module: 31 # 8 # 0 # **

  • Blue Wire to P2 Gray Terminal
  • Black Wire to P2 Green Terminal

COM port to Hub Modem Connection

Hyperterminal AT commands

To set modem to answer on one ring enter the following commands in hyperterminal:

  • AT <enter> Wait for OK result
  • ATS0=1&W0 <enter> Wait for OK result
  • Exit hyperterminal
Note: For a different number of rings change the 1 in the command about to the desired number of rings. For example for 2 rings type ATS0=2&W0.
