If you purchase one WITH an AS/400 as feature code 0032, all the dip
switches as set correctly for Sync use on an AS/400 (eg. for ECS modem
usage).
If you purchase it via the IBM part # for Options by IBM the modem does
NOT come with the switches set for Sync usage.
You need to set dip switch 4 down, 7 up, & 12 Up.
The complete switch settings are:
UUDDUUUDDUDUUUUU

Note that as this modem is made by Multitech (an MT2834BL) you can use
that and make the same switch settings also.
Also, the Multitech MT2834BA is a cheaper version, missing only the
leased line capability.
