Using JetSetter Software
JetSetter software allows you to select the country where you plan to use your modem and automatically configures the modem for that country's telephone system to ensure compatibility and high performance.
If you travel to a different country, you can change your modem's configuration by opening JetSetter and selecting the country. If you are in a country that is not listed, select USA. If you have problems connecting, see the Troubleshooting and Support section of this guide.
Connecting in different countries may require trial and error until you determine exactly what you need, because a particular country may have multiple exchange systems that require different configurations. The information provided below is to help you with this process.
Make sure that you have the correct country adapter when you try to connect. We suggest you try each step below, one at a time:
Blind dialing lets you dial regardless of whether the modem detects a dial tone. Turn on blind dialing by inserting X3 into your software initialization string immediately before the telephone number. This setting disables any "Detect Dial Tone" feature in your communications software.
If you are using dial-up networking, follow these steps to turn on blind dialing:
Windows 95, 98, Me, and NT 4.0
To turn off blind dialing, insert X4 in the initialization string immediately after the telephone number. Follow the steps above for your operating system and reselect Wait for Dial Tone Before Dialing.
The JetSetter software can determine the Unix device file which was assigned by the PCMCIA support software to the modem. It can also be used to configure the modem for the country where it is being used to ensure compatibility and high performance.
To set the country where you plan to use the modem, use the JetSetter-s command (or at+gci? in Terminal Mode), followed by the country where you are using the modem. The country can be specified either by its full name, or by the country's official ISO-3166 digit code. (For example, the USA's two Hex digits code is B5, and Canada's is 20.)
