I downloaded what I think _might_ be the windows driver for the card,
and in the .inf (and an included cirrus.txt) the +VCID=n command is
documented. I figured the modem would return ERROR if +VCID=n wasn't

That's because I don't exactly know what kind of modem it is ;p I
searched for its PnP Id and went from there. It was given to me "I just
upgraded my 33.6 to a 56k, so you can have this" and it ended up being a
56k. I'll upgrade to the latest firmware and see if that helps anything.
