It depends on which operating system you're using. If you're using Windows XP, go to google and do a search on "windows xp modem initialization string" (without the quotes) and that should lead you to several sites giving instructions on how and where to enter the string.
As for what string to use, that will come from either your pc manufacturer or modem manufacturer. I have an HP, and their site allows you to enter your model number and it gives you the string to enter. If yours isn't so straightforward, you might need to google around with your pc model or modem model.
Good luck! Let us know if this helps any.
