Try typing (as root) in a terminal window (or while still in CLI) netconfig and tell us what happened. It's been a while since I used a modem in Linux so I'm not 100% on how to fix it anymore. I'll check through my notes and see. You also will probably need to install those drivers from if you haven't already.

did you install the drive ?
is it an rpm or tar.gz?
if it's rpm. you just have to set it up again using "neat" and your modem should been linked to /dev/modem.

For conexant I believe as root you run hsfconfig then this will install the modem drivers and link the proper /dev to /dev/modem. Once you have done this try kppp and query the modem it should find the modem now.
