A terminal program is a program (such as Microsoft terminal, comes with Windows) that lets you use MS-DOS like commands to manipulate the modem.

Use Start->Programs->Accesories-Communications->HyperTerminal. Start it and when he asks for connection name, just press cancel. Then just type "at" in the main window. If it says "ok" -- the everything is ok. Now you can type that command. For me, ATUSR1 worked. Look here what it gave me: http://www.geocities.com/jonnsmithy/usrcreds.gif

Very likely that "older modems" are modems for plain old telephone line, not ADSL or something like that.

OK...Maybe I'm pushing the envelope here a little, but I didn't think that there was anything "egg-worthy" of the AT command, considering its uses. And a terminal program is a command-line interface program, usually resembling the old "dumb terminal" interfaces of mainframes and days gone by. Ahhh...smell that VAX/VMS! @8^)
