    Can you give some details on the modem? What brand is it, model name/number type of connection etc.

    Class 0703: 8086:2486 Modem: Intel Corp. 82801CA/CAM AC'97 Modem Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [Generic])
    SubSystem 1179:0001 Toshiba America Info Systems Toshiba Satellite 1110 Z15 internal Modem
    Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 11
    Checking for IRQ 11 sharing with modem.

    Recompile the kernel with support for your modem. It takes less than 10 minutes.
