nm-applet cannot communicate with ModemManager on serveral Hardware

we are running a selfmade Distro, which is gentoo based.
Modemmanager is started by Networkmanager via dbus.
Here is the order of the services, started by our runlevel script:
8 different networkservices
xfce (which starts nm-applet via autostart)

The thing i am wondering about is that it works on most notebooks, but 
not on all, so it is related to the hardware it runs from
