Why aren't I getting a dial tone?

Brand new Creative modem which can't find a dial tone the first time after I boot up. I cancel the connection and retry and all's fine for every connection until the next restart. Any ideas as to why it should keep failing the first time, every time?

Is it internal or external? If the latter, try having the modem switched on when starting the PC.

But no luck. There was no fix listed under my problem and besides, it only happens the first dial up after boot. Anyone else wanna take a shot?

Uninstall then reinstall drivers / check for updated drivers on creative web site

Try going into Control Panel and remove the modem then restart computer to see if it gets picked up by plug and pray

Perhaps try built in diagnostics in its properties, might not tell you much but worth a look. I agree with woodchip if that doesn't work perhaps try removing the actual card starting windows, shutting down and then putting it back in a differant slot. Also might be worth checking your telephone cable to make sure it is plugged in securely and the cable is not damaged as might cause intermitten problems.
