Are you using Kppp? Check the Setup... -> Modem tab for a Modem Volume slider.

If you're using scripts like pppd-up, or I think wvdial, see the Modem Commands... tab instead which tells me the volume off command for the modem is M0L0, instead of M1L1 or M1L3.

I've got the same modem and it is a winmodem. It's a modem/soundcard combo, so apparently the M0 command doesen't work...
UPDATE: I used KMix to turn down/mute the speaker. Look for it in KDE (K Icon->Multimedia->KMix), and turn down the 'Speaker' slider all the way...hope this helps you like it did for me.
