Check the modem, it is likely to be a setting in regards to your modem.
Go into your control panel and click on Modems and check all the settings including the tab Dialing Properties.
Make sure you have set the country to NZ and you are not using pulse instead of tone, make sure you are using the right number to dial up the isp, some isp's do not require you to use a area code, etc.

If all else fails, uninstall the modem and reboot and then reinstall.

Try uninstalling(remove) and reinstalling with different settings, you'll get it eventually.

Try searching for the correct driver. OPen up case have a look for telepermit on modem, which will have its model number on it.

Hope that helps.
