Bobterm and Wimodem232OLED

Ok, so I just got my Wimodem232OLED in and am trying to get online. I haven't connected the modem to my wireless network yet. The instructions say that first I should type in the ATI command with it set at 300 baud and ascii to make sure everything is hooked up correctly. And, in Bobterm I don't see where I can type in ATI. I see where I can add a phone number but typing ATI in there doesn't get me anywhere.

 

I'm also a bit concerned because my LED hasn't lit up on the modem either like in the pictures so I'm not sure it's getting power. I have it hooked up through my P:R: Connection.

 

Any guidance for me please?

Are you supplying the 5V power required by the Wimodem232 via its onboard USB connector?

 

You need to be in Bobterms terminal mode (not the UI settings mode) to talk directly to a modem.

 

I feel VERY smart right now. I had forgotten all about needing to do that.

I'm on! Feels good to be back on the BBS circuit. 8-Bit Guild is my first stop.

 

I found a cable that fit the modem from one of my camera's. Is anything that fits safe or do I need to get one specifically for the modem? Don't want to fry it out.

Anything that'll carry the current and isn't falling apart should do the job :)

 

Speaking of safe, Jim has a free downloadable STL set for printing a nicely functional little case for it. I'd recommend anyone who can print one and has one of these do so. If you can't do it yourself, you can always use the files with an online printing service.

Yes, I was definitely planning on getting a case. I see a guy sells them for $33 shipped on eBay which sounds quite high. I just discovered my local library offer 3d Printing. That should be much cheaper. :-)

I just downloaded the STL files and there was only one set. Shouldn't there be one set of plans for the regular and a different one for the OLED model?

 

Never mind. Just found an STL reader and it looks like this set will work for the OLED. Thanks for the tip. I'm sure it will save me quite a few bucks.
