I have Puppy up and running from a multisession CD, and am having a lot of fun with it, but the loudness of the modem speaker must be set on maximum because it's shrieking gives me a headache every time I dial up my internet connection.

How do I access the modem to set the loudness to minimum or off?

You'll have to readup on modem initialisation strings.

The chatscript can be found in /etc/ppp/chatscripts
and in there you will find a file with a line that has

"" "ATZ"

...or something like that.
There's a hayes command for setting volume that you can
add to it. Anyone know?

The Modems.com home page for Extended AT Command Sets is here

Here and here are some Microsoft Knowledge Base articles on using AT Modem Commands. Twisted Evil

According to this page:

L0 - Mute

L1 - Low volume

L2 - Medium volume

L3 - High volume

I found these by Googling modem commands.

Thanks.

I understand about initialization strings. I just didn't know where to put them.

Code:

ABORT ERROR
ABORT BUSY
ABORT "NO CARRIER"
ABORT "NO DIALTONE"
REPORT CONNECT
"" "ATZ"
OK "ATM0"
OK "ATD0198333424"
TIMEOUT 60
CONNECT "\c"


This is my chat script. But the modem shrieks as loudly as ever. What have i done wrong here?

dragging up an old thread
don't know if this has been answered somewhere else or if it might help someone (and keep in mind i'm pretty green at using linux - in case it doesn't work, but it works for me)
in this line
Code:
"" "ATZ"

replace the Z with S11=50
this will speed dial
check it
then add M to make it
Code:
"" "ATMS11=50"

and it should be silent

If you use wvdial, you can edit the initialisation string on the line (of the dialler, itself). Most everyone has problems with gkdial and I don't know anyone who uses xeznet.
