please try to use the '/dev/ttySHCF0' device instead of the '/dev/ttySL0' 

You should also make sure that you have set the right country when you 
installed the modem driver. You can see the current setting with the 
'hsfpciconfig --info' command in a root shell and you can change this setting 
with the 'hcfpciconfig --country' command in a root shell.

You could also try with the 'AT &F X3' initialization string to see if there 
is a difference. The 'X3' parameter disable the BUSY signal detection.

It is also possible that the problem is related to IRQ routing in your Linux 
kernel. Please try to boot with the 'pci=noacpi' kernel boot parameter to see 
if there is a difference.

If you require more assistance, please send us at support at linuxant.com the 
output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

hcfpciconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('hcfdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
