	I will bet you dollars to donuts this problem has nothing to do with
FreeBSD. The problem will be one of the following:

	1) The serial port is at the wrong baud rate.

	2) The serial cable is wired incorrectly.

	3) You are sending the wrong commands to the modem or not speaking the
protocol is supports.

	4) You are connected to the wrong serial port or a defective serial port.

	This is a pretty routine problem to troubleshoot. If you're not familiar
with basic serial device troubleshooting techniques, you probably shouldn't
be attempting to connect an ISDN modem to a UNIX-like machine.
