I can only speak about dial up systems, but there is a setting under 'Phone and Modem Options' in 'Control Panel', <your modem>>Properties>Modem. There is a button under 'Dial Control' called 'wait for dial tone before dialing'. If that is not ticked I would change it.
You could also put a comma (pause) in front of the dial-up number, which get the modem to wait a few seconds before blurting out the dial up numbers.
How this all applies to broadband where I thought you were supposed to be connected all the time I don't know.
