It is greyed out because your using a generic driver for you modem and not the driver for the modem it self, the generic driver will allow the modem to function but not give you advanced options.  Install the proper driver for your modem and the slider will appear and not be greyed out.  What modem do you have I can help you find a driver for it.

You may also control your modem speaker by adding the command to lower the speaker volume, or turn it off.  This is done in your modem setup by going to properties, connection, advanced, extra modem settings. Add the ATL1 comand there, or ATL0.

one other thing you can do is (internal?) just turn the speakers off
