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?
