Default Dial-up Networking takes abt 7sec b4 dialing

Why does dial-up networking take or wait about 7 seconds before dialing a dial-up number?

*Uses tone dialing. Area code and dialing properties and all the advanced options in the server types tab are unchecked except Enable Software Compression and TCP/IP.

Yep it's checking line status. It might be phone line noise.
