My moden plays the modem sound through the speakers of the computer, it even continues to do it when I change to USB speakers, mute selection in the modems properties does not solve the problem. I have looked into the bios and there are no options for the sound, only to disable the sound altogher and not just for the modem. It is a PCI modem, ess2829 (I think), it is occuring on the 2 machines where the modem is installed and not on the other computers which have different modems.

This is clearly being caused by the modem software.
Go to your device manager and enter your modem properties / advance tab.
Here should be an option to either shut the sound / don't route the sound to the soundcard.

It could also be that your modem has it's own configuration item in the start menu or in the control panel.
Please check all options there too.

I changed the brand of modem, then muted the modem through the properties box and the modem sound is no longer playing through the speakers, I think that it is just a fault of the modem I was initially using for the driver files for this modem.

karstieman:
your first solution worked when I changed the modem, therefore, I think that you are correct, it is the properties of the modem which are the problem.
