First, you are insufficiently specific. You should tell us in what way
it doesn't work; what programs you are using; what else you have tried;
what error messages (if any) you have seen.
You wouldn't ring up a doctor and say nothing but "I'm not feeling well"
... would you?
Make sure it's not a 'Winmodem' - if it is, throw it in the bin; such modems
_need_ Windows to do their work for them. There are no Linux drivers for
Winmodems and there never will be.
Read the Serial-HOWTO and the PPP-HOWTO.
Use minicom to talk to the modem; you should be able to type in `AT<return>'
and get back `OK'.
Turn on debugging in the dial-out software you are using.
Try the log-in process `by hand', through minicom.
Compare the dial-out log trace with what you saw in minicom; adjust your
configuration files to fit.
I have a web-page on the subject of configuring PPP and diald at
