Modem not connecting

I'm used to have a Logicode modem to connect to the Internet(using Dial up from Sprint). It was a 33.6 modem and Sprint had anywhere from 28.8 to 56K lines. It used to connect at 33.6 OK everytime on the first try. Now, I have a new computer with a 56K modem with a Rockwell chipet. When I dial, it picks up, and those modem sounds come on, and the very end of the cycle(of sounds), insead of connecting, it just repeats the sounds over and over until the modem times out. It does this 2 or three times. Then after that, it connects ok. Any idea what might cause this?

Check with Sprint to see if they're using X2 or K56, these are the 2 56K standards out.  They've now a new standard for 56K which combines X2 and K56 called V.90, but for X2 or K56 users, they'd require a bios upgrade.  Your problem could be that you're ISP is using X2 modems.  (Your's a K56 modem.)
