what do you mean exactly by 'noapic' and 'acpi=off' caused a temporary 
ring detection? It worked until you reboot the machine? It worked until 
you had to reload the driver? It worked just one time and no longer 
after that? etc... If you do not use the 'noapic' and 'acpi=off' kernel 
boot parameters, are you able to use the ring detection feature or not 
at all?

When you mean that the modem was previously detecting the ring, what 
package and version of the driver did you used and on which Linux 
distribution and version?

You should also make sure that you have selected the right country when 
you installed the modem driver. You can see the currently selected 
country with the 'hcfpciconfig -i, command in a root shell and you can 
change this setting with the 'hcfpciconfig --country' command in a root

The modem has now stopped detecting when the phone rings. i am only using this modem to display callerid information. i have tested the line by dialing out using atdt and answering by using ata, both seem to work fine. my driver version is hcfpcimodem-1.01lnxt04082400full_k2.6.8_1.521-1fdr installed from rpm. also i have tried booting with noapic and apci=off in the kernel modules, this caused a temporary ring detection.
