I would remove the modem from the pc anyway as its a potential security risk for dialers,you dont have to uninstall it just make sure its only connected if and when you need it,and make sure you know what number it is dialing when you do use it.It may be that it is dialing the wrong connection using the dial up modem instead of the BB modem,have you scan for dialers just to be sure you are clean.

Go to network connections and see if the dial up modem is set as your default connection
