sound card & modem integration

When I bought my computer, it originally had a data/fax/modem (14.4k) integrated on one board. My speakers & microphone were originally plugged into the appropriate jacks. I have since installed a usr internal data/fax/voice 56k modem & SoundBlaster 16 sound card. I removed the original multifunction card.
My problem is if I want to use the speakerphone (talk on the phone using speaker & microphone) & also maintain using the speakers & microphone with other functions on the computer, I would need 2 microphones - 1 plugged into the soundcard & 1 plugged into the modem, and split my speaker cabling to also run it to both cards.

Is there a way to set it up as it was before, with just 1 mic  and plug the speaker into the back of the sound card and also use it with my modem?
I am running Win 95, 64mb ram

Some voice modem software lets you re-direct audio to the sound card.Cheyenne's Bitware will do this.Check yours.

Or,as a hardware solution: I believe the SB16 has LINE-IN and -OUT jacks on the back,along with SPEAKER and MIC.Just connect MIC and SPKR from the modem to the LINE jacks on the SB with stereo mini phone cables (available at Radio Shack,or probably any audio store).Make sure these lines are enabled in the SB/Win mixer.

I tried both solutions, but only the hardware solution worked to any degree. I had previously tried extra cabling between the modem\soundcard\speakers, & I don't get acceptable results. the sound quality on the speakers drops off. I am certain there must be a way to do this without having to run any extra cables or patch cords.
