No idea. Not enough information. You have apparently a winmodem. These are
pieces of junk. Your driver from linmodems may be not working, or may not
be for your modem, you may have set up kppp wrongly, you may have forgotten
to plug the modem into the telephone line, etc. All are possible
explanations on the basis of what you have told us.
winmodems are sound cards, which software makes create the right beeps and
whistles to pretend to be a modem. Under Windows the manufacturer of your
modem wrote that software. That manufacturer not only refused to write the
equivalent software for Linux but refused to tell people who wanted to do
it for them how their soundcard actually worked. As you can imagine this
makes it hard to write the driver. Yell at the manufacturer., or better
yet, get a decent modem.
