You need to give the modem a little tempo for it to power up before
sending the various initialisation strings. This may be the cause of your
problem. MacOS takes care of this by hard-blocking the machine when
opening the driver. At least, this is how it works with the wallstreet,
but I think it's the same modem in the Lombard.
