    From your dmesg output ... it appears that your motherboard has two built-in serial ports ... which are being detected by the 8250 serial driver.

    Your PCI modem card is not being detected ... probably because there is no driver loaded for it.
    Possibly an HSF modem driver is needed.

    Men occasionally stumble over the truth,
    but most of them pick themselves up
    and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
