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?
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.
