Sounds like you have echo turned off in the modems internal prom setting. Use Hayes AT command to turn on echo function of modem hardware. Did these modems you tested work ok in FBSD 4.8?

I hooked up an external 28.8 modem after continuity-cheking the cable but the lights didn't seem right, as I remember them. (I've not use my modem for several years.) Modem doesn't respond to terminal emulator commands and seems broken, so I throw in an internal (non-winmodem) Sportster (that I've just seen working OK under Linux). Boot message looks OK as it flashes by; it identifies the proper UART, IRQs, etc, (but not an ID string from the modem -- I don't know if that's expected or not). I hand-set the "COM #" and "IRQ" and made things match in /boot/device.hints. And it sort of works. I'm using "/dev/cuaa3". When I run a terminal emulator (tip, seyon, and minicom, so far), I get the same behavior: 1) Each character typed isn't seen until I type the next character. 2) Giving it the "AT" command (or most others), it never says "OK", but a few info commands, like "ATI6" will slowly spit out their reply (even ending with "OK") if I bang away on the keys, one or two characters per key. Looks like some kind of flow-control problem, but I've tried lots of fixes (using the terminal emulator's config controls) and always get the same behavior. I've even messed with some of the "stty" stuff, though I think that should be overruled by the terminal emulators (except maybe "tip", which I barely know). Any hints?
