Probably a good first suggestion is to see if it is seen by the system...

will reveal that, and/or 
less /var/log/dmesg

apt-cache search modem
reveals lots of software that should "see" the modem, like kppp for KDE...

Remember, modems are not being used by a lot of the developers nowadays, so 
the software might not get worked on as fervently.
