your modem is connected to an AC97 bus and this modem could be provided 
by various manufacturers but only the ones provided by Conexant are 
supported by our HSF modem driver.

Please run the 'hsfconfig --info' command in a root shell and if your 
modem is not based on a Conexant chipset, it will be reported in the 
output of the 'dmesg' command, near the end.

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

hsfconfig --dumpdiag

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