Howto find associated com port of a pci modem under debian 2.6.8

Hey everyone,

I have a question i'm hoping someone can answer for me. I have a AVM fcdsl internal pci adsl modem. I installed the driver and at boot time the module loads fine. in order to setup a ppp connection i need to know what com port the device is using but i don't know how to do that. I've tried tty0 through 5 but no luck. Google told me to try "lspci -vv" wich I did but i can't make heads or tails out of its output. Can anyone here either explain to me what the output listed below means and/or how to find the com port the device is using?

sincerely, Chryso.

This excerpt from the Modem HOWTO might help. The ttys should be ttyS0 to ttyS3 instead of tty0 to tty3.
