Have you tried dialing in via a term client? Run the radlogin test
utility to see what kind of response times your getting from radius.
Put radius in debug mode and see if your test logins (from the NAS) are
making it to the radius server.

There are other possibilities ... your peek times are also most others. It
could have something to do with the phone system and compatibility
problems negotiating a reasonable connection for current line conditions.

Just because a modem successfully handshakes doesen't nessessarily mean
a useable connection was established.

Check your radius logs for line noise...etc in the login and data fields.
The absence of such things in RadLogs can't prove much.

Have Fun!
