I think you'll find you have a software conflict between your existing Modem and the Scanner/Fax/Printer as it has a modem in it as well although admittedly a much slower modem than a standard dial up one.

If you remove the Fax Drivers that should get your modem working again.

Cheers

Go to control panel, open modem options, find the modem in question, open it's properties and remove the Wait for Dial tone check box.
