Let us know the type, brand, model number modem you're using and which dialer program. Maybe we can help then.

From my research, the softv92 data fax modem is a software modem. Linux in general does not work well with software modems. You need to get a hardware modem such as a external serial or PCI USRobotics or 3Com and mount it into your machine. You need to make sure you have a dialer program installed with your UBUNTA such as Kppp or WVdial. More people can help you then.
In my opinion, you're wasting your time with the software modem with Linux.
