Can you listen to the modem and watch the lights - do they 
change? Does the modem react at all to the initialisation 
string? Have you power cycled the modem a few times (leaving 
it off long enough for its ram to clear - twenty seconds 
should be enough)? Have you checked your initialisation 
string against the modem's manual/web page to ensure that 
it says what you think it says?

One of these questions should give you a further avenue of 
investigation, if nothing else. Hopefully break up the log-
jam. :)
