    I think its the program embedded into the modem that instructs the modem what to do.

      It's the programming within the hardware, kind of like a "driver" but read-only and usually flashable.

        As I'm using pppd to call my adsl connection via an external modem, we have to load some code or intructions into the modem before it connects. I run the following in the Linux command line:

        modem_run -m -f /dir/adsl-start
