Apple IIe/IIc/IIgs setups
#1
This thread will describe how to setup the WiModem232 for use with Apple //e, Apple //c, and Apple //gs systems.

Apple //c & Laser 128

Cut the traces and add the solder bridges as shown in the manual - NOTE: NOT AN OPTION! (only applies to V1 WiModem232!  V2 requires NO changes)

ProTERM terminal program settings

Port type - Apple //c or Laser 128 (depending on your computer)
Modem cable - 5 pin din to DB25 cable.  This is a standard modem cable, NOT a NULL-modem cable!

Modem types:

300 baud - Apple 300 baud driver
Init string - ATX1&C0&S1

2400 baud - Generic 2400 baud driver
Init string - ATX1&C0&S1

9600 baud - Generic Fixed-Speed (RTS/CTS) driver
Init string - ATX1&C0&K1&S1


Apple //gs using built-in modem port

Cut the traces and add the solder bridges as shown in the manual - NOTE: NOT AN OPTION! (only applies to V1 WiModem232!  V2 requires NO changes)

ProTERM terminal program settings

Port type - Apple //gs Modem Port
Modem cable - Apple //c+, Apple //gs or Apple Mac 8 pin din to DB25 cable.  This is a standard modem cable, NOT a NULL-modem cable!

Modem types:

300 baud - Apple 300 baud driver
Init string - ATX1&C0&S1

2400 baud - Generic 2400 baud driver
Init string - ATX1&C0&S1

9600 baud - Generic Fixed-Speed (RTS/CTS) driver
Init string - ATX1&C0&K1&S1


Apple //gs with Super Serial Card

Cut the traces and add the solder bridges as shown in the manual - NOTE: NOT AN OPTION! (only applies to V1 WiModem232!  V2 requires NO changes)

Super Serial Card setup

You will need to set the dip switch settings correctly!  Please refer to the photos below for the proper setup.  These settings are being used by many people for different purposes besides the WiModem232 (like ADTPro) and they ARE the correct dip switch settings to use!  Also note that there is a 16 pin solid jumper block on the right side of the board that has a triangle (arrow) on it.  The arrow must be facing as shown in the picture (pointing towards "MODEM" that is printed on the circuit board).


ProTERM terminal program settings


Port type - Super Serial Card (select the slot your SSC is in - make sure your control panel setting is correct)
Modem cable - Direct connect using DB25 gender changer

Modem types:

300 baud - Apple 300 baud driver
Init string - ATX1&C0&S1

2400 baud - Generic 2400 baud driver
Init string - ATX1&C0&S1

9600 baud - Generic Fixed-Speed (RTS/CTS) driver
Init string - ATX1&C0&K1&S1

NOTE!  ProTERM will fail to initialize the modem until you have changed the DCD polarity with AT*D1.   Once the failure box pops up, select ONLINE to continue.  Go to terminal mode using Option-T.  Once in termal mode type AT*D1&C0&W (you should see an 'OK' response if successful).  That will change the DCD to be proper and save the settings.  From that point, restart ProTERM and the modem initialization will work correctly.



Apple //e with Super Serial Card

Same as //gs with Super Serial Card

*** NOTE *** IF YOU DO NOT SEE ANY RESPONSE FROM THE MODEM, ESPECIALLY AT 300 BAUD, TRY FLIPPING DIP SWITCH 7 OF SW1 (THE FIRST DIPSWITCH BLOCK) TO THE OPPOSITE POSITION!

Also, not that the top of the screen will show the baud rate that ProTerm is trying to operate at.  ProTerm is buggy when it comes to switching baud rates.  After setting up a driver, you will have to reload that driver again, so that the baud rate at the top of the screen is correct!
