won't stay connected to isp

I'm running Linux on a 486 laptop with a 2400
baud modem, and I haven't been able to stay
connected to any isp.

When I used minicom to connect, I get a prompt
for user name and password, then I get a message
saying ppp is starting and then garbage on the
screen for about a minute, then it disconnects.

When I use pon, the log says something like sending
LCD packet, receiving LCD packet, a few times, then 
I'm disconnected.

I know this isp uses PAP, and I've used pppconfig over and
over to try and get this to work, but no luck. Any suggestions
for changes to my scripts?
