Modems not answering inbound call on RAS on Windows 2008

I have setup a RAS dial up connection running on a Windows 2008 server.  The modems were answering without issue but as of late they are taking 5 or more rings to answer.  I have not found where there are settings for how many rings to wait before they answer.  Is that controlled by RAS or by the modem?

    I added the following REG HACK
    Added DWORD NumberOfRings
    Set value to 1

    Now the modems seem to be answering.
