Modems don't have drivers. You must have a winmodem instead.

No, that's a winmodem.

Just don't use the thing. Get a porper modem.

I can't. Anyway, why are you using /dev/modem instead of where the
serial device provided by the driver is? ...

But is /dev/ham there? If not, create it!

No, you should show us what you have done and what you see. You haven't
convinced me that you have loaded the driver or created a device file
for it. You haven't shown us the kernel's messages on loading the
module, etc. etc.

I don't understand. If you loaded the driver you can unload it!

Provide some data. Tell us what you have done. Show us what you see.
