This may be too obvious but, have you configured the modem itself to do
xon/xoff flow control? On my modem (SupraExpress 336e) this is AT&K4.

For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit
within him? In the same way, no one knows the thoughts of God except
the Spirit of God. We have not received the spirit of the world but the
Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given
