yes the entry was wrong... changed it. when i try to use tip i get
device busy. when i use cu it says connected but nothing else happens
and i don't see any prompts. it's like frozen. i can't type any AT
commands... nothing. i changed the baud rate around. all the way down to
9600. so now the same thing happens with tip. if used tip says connected
but i can not issue any commands...
the modem has 2 leds. one yellow and one green. according to the manual
the yellow should be blinking as follows:
Fast Blinking (0.5 sec on/0.5 sec off) Net search/ Not
Slow Blinking (0.3 sec on/ 2.7 sec off) Registered, Full Service
i think i'm only seeing 'Fast Blinking'..... i wonder what 'Net search'
really means and where it's searching for it. it's connected through a
RS-232 to the serial port...
