kppp: "initializing modem" +1 minute!
I try to connect to the internet using kppp. After openeing the app I click the "connect button and I get the following messages:
"initializing modem" ... (I can hear a very high pitched sound indicating the modem is active)
log window shows "Expecting OK".
However it takes up to a minute for the modem to 'initialize' before it starts dialing-in. It didn't use to do this in my previous installation (this is a re-install after I thoroughly messed up the fs and partition table) and I'm using the same everything (hardware, app versions etc.) I've had a look at the modem settings in kppp, but I don't see anything that looks different.
I've also looked under "System Settings->Network" (in Gnome) and the only setting I'm not sure about is "Enable IPv6 configuration" but it doesn't change anything in the initialization speed
