To detect call waiting using a current model Rockwell/Conexant modem,
set S10 >= 16.
From a Conexant command reference manual:
22.214.171.124 S10 - Lost Carrier To Hang Up Delay
S10 sets the length of time, in tenths of a second, that the modem
waits before* up after a loss of carrier. This allows for a
temporary carrier loss without causing the local modem to disconnect.
When register S10 is set to 255, the modem functions as if a carrier
is always present.
The actual interval the modem waits before disconnecting is the value
in register S10 minus the value in register S9. Therefore, the S10
value must be greater than the S9 value or else the modem disconnects
before it recognizes the carrier.
Range: 1-255 tenths of a second
Default: 14 (1.4 seconds)
Note: For Call Waiting detection, if the modem is set to US country
code and S10 >=16, then the modem will detect the Call Waiting tone
and hang-up the line. If S10 <16, the modem will not detect Call
