Have you gone into Device Manager and confirmed and IRQ conflict?
Right click on My Computer, chose the Hardware tab, and click Device Manager.
In there you should be able to see the modem, click the + beside the modem. Your Motorola modem should be listed. Then highlight it, right click and click properties. Go to the Resources tab and see if it lists any conflicts. Do the same for you wireless adapter card. It should be using IRQ 11.
IRQ 10 & 11 should be available to assign a device.
Normally modems are configured to use COM3's resources (IRQ 4 ) or COM4's resources (IRQ 3).
Changing system resources such as IRQ channels can result in your computer not functioning correctly, always make a note of the settings before you change anything so you can restore them back if required.
You could try manually setting them in your motherboard's BIOS.
