John is right, its your ISP. I used to have a problem like that with
Netcom, twice a year. Their Support group kept telling me I was doing
something wrong. My 'fix' for 2 years was to put my ppp-on into a
'Netcom' script that repeated the ppp-on attempts. It would take
anywhere from 1 to 12 attempts before I got connected. The problem
would last for a week or two and then, after they got so many
complaints, they would fix it. Then I would go back to the normal
