Go to the Winmodem identification page here
And see if you can find out about your modem. Most likely either:
- It is a hardware modem which linux requires some extra jiggery pokery to make work (unlikely)
- It is a software modem (winmodem) which requires a special linux driver
- It is a software modem which is entirely incompatible with Linux, as no driver or specs has been provided by the manufacturer.
Nearly all the modems that ship these days are winmodems. Some models work under Linux but many don't. See the numerous other threads on AO on the same topic.

Getting a modem (non WinModem) to work with linux is a challenge. Try doing the following from command line.
echo "atdt5555309" > /dev/ttyS0
Listen to see if your modem picks up and dials. If that doesn't work change ttys0 to ttys1, ttys2 or ttys3.
If that doesn't work you might want to try the dip command.
