Modem takes more than a minute to dial out with kppp

I just bought a new modem... an external modem ,but when I dial with kppp it takes about a minute before it dials, it then connects and works fine

If I use the termanal and enter things manually atz then atdt and the number it dials straight away.

I guess there must be something strange with kppp but unfortunatly I donīt know how to manualy setup and dial/disconect.

Any ideas as to why it might be taking so long to dial? I have tried playing with the configuration but no change.

"Any ideas as to why it might be taking so long to dial?"

The next time you start kppp click on the log window. This will display the modem commands that kppp is issueing. Write them down because when you connect the log window disappears. Then you can look at the kppp modem commands and see if it is doing anything which simply wastes time.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
