Well, I don't know whether this will help, but this happens to me:
look at the TTY which is assigned to your modem (or use /dev/modem).
Then set
	setserial /dev/modem irq 0

See whether your modem works after this -- if it does, you likely have
an IRQ conflict.  Try to
	setserial /dem/modem irq <number>
till it works (cat /proc/interrupts can help).  The funny thing is
that I have to pass through `irq 0' each time I reboot -- don't
understand why.
