Most modems use the basic Hayes Command Set.

but try Supra's web site. There may be some additional commands for the supra.

Here are some basic ones I know:

at&f0 will get the modem's attention and load the factory default settings

add any of the following:

L0 for lowest speaker volume
L1 for low speaker volume
L2 for medium
L3 for high

M0 Speaker is always off
M1 speaker is on until the modem detects a carrier
M2 Speaker is always on
M3 Speaker is off unless answering

to dial,

ATDT plus the phone #.

KPPP works for me. You can poke around in the setup and put in things like


If F0 doesnt work try just F

Lucent has a doc on their web site giving details on the AT command set for "Host
based controllers"
It's got everything.

Apple has a doc called AT Commands for the Apple Internal Modem on their support
