You have working serial ports on /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyS4, /dev/ttyS5, but no serial ports on /dev/ttyS1, /dev/ttyS3 and anything above /dev/ttyS5.
My suggestion is to connect your modem on /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyS4 or /dev/ttyS5
Did you check your BIOS settings?
you will need to be root and just remove /dev/modem and relink it to the device you wish use.
#ln -s /dev/ttyS4 /dev/modem
when do an ls on /dev/modem it should show you the link
#ls -l /dev/modem
Hope this helps
for documantation see
