Are the jumpers on the modem set to 'COM4' and 'IRQ3' ?

You might have to download a patch for your irq routing. What kind of chip is on your MB?

a)Is there any devices on com2? (This also uses irq3). Check for conflicts etc.
b)Do you know the make and model? Or failing that the fcc id number will give you that info. (If you do an advanced search for the fcc number at www.windrivers.com, get the manufacturers name, then look up the model number at windrivers.com on company search and download latest drivers).
c)Look on your 486 pc for modem info. If it was using win95/98 go into control panel,diagnostics,modem info and look for manufacturers name in AT command list.(Thats if you can get the modem to go back on to the 486 machine)or look in device manager.If win 3.1/3.11 then look for device drivers in config.sys or system.ini .

Fine.  Use the "Add New Hardware" wizard, and specify those settings.

If you have a serial-port mouse, connect it to COM1, and leave COM2 "unused", i.e., IRQ3 is used solely by COM4, thus avoiding, in practice, what is a "theoretical" conflict between COM2 and COM4, which both desire to use IRQ3.

Then, START -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Modems -> Diagnostics -> select modem -> More Info
and see what is detected.

Good.  
In "Device Manager", remove the modem, and remove the COM2 port.
Shutdown.
Power-off,
Re-jumper the modem to COM2.
Reboot, and enter BIOS-setup,
Then "disable" the motherboard's COM2 port.
Reboot, and allow/help "Add New Hardware" wizard to find modem on COM2.
