Can you clarify which module you really mean? First you are talking
about "USBSERIAL" and then "USB-serial" but in the standard kernel
package none of them exist. However there IS a module "usbserial". Did you
perhaps build a special module for your device? When referring to
modules, please take care of exact spelling and remember that file names
are case sensitive.
OTOH, it should not be necessary to load modules manually, that should be
done by udev automatically when the device is connected to your machine.
Maybe there is a rule missing for your device? Furthermore it shouldn't
be necessary to load a module a second time if there are several devices
which use the same module. Do you have to enter options when loading the
module which are specific for your modem?

There is a module named "sierra" and a module named "option". Probably one
of those is meant - did you try to load one them instead? However we can't
tell you which because you didn't tell us what hardware you are talking
about. A "Hot Plug wireless Modem" or a "Dell modem" can be many things.
Well, maybe not if you are familiar with Dell products. To clarify how
your machine can see your modem, please open a terminal and enter the
while your modem is unplugged. Then plug it in and repeat the command.
There should be one file different. It usually looks like this:
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 046d:c313 Logitech, Inc.
Well, this example is a keyboard, not a serial interface, but the line
looks similar. Copy and paste that line to your mail and we can possibly
help you further. Another option would be to use the ID from the line and
try to find the answer with Google. The ID in the example above would
