Can't detect COM ports...

  I have got a problem with my HS56 PCTel modem because I can not enable
  my serial ports. The first two ports are automatically enabled, but
  the third and the fourth does not get enabled. I read the handbook and
  tried to do it myself, but without success. I have connected the modem
  to the COM3 port(sio2). When I take the output of "dmesg" command I
  get the following output.... 

sio2: configured irq 5 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0
sio2: port may not be enabled
sio3: configured irq 9 not in bitmap of probed irqs 0
sio3: port may not be enabled

The irqs and are as follows
sio0  4
sio1  3
sio2  5
sio3  9  

I have also removed the lines that disable COM3 and COM4 ports from the
file "/boot/device.hints". Can anyone please tell me what should I do
