I have the same problem with my provider! He claims it's not him, but I
have tried two different manufacturers modems on two different machines
as well as on two different phone lines (I thought for a while that call
waiting was not being defeated properly with *70) None of these
situations provided any better results. My conclusion is that my provider
is hanging up on me, and it's not clear why. I most often happens to me
when I am in the middle of a major download! If you come up with
something that pppd is doing to encourage this behavior I would really
like to hear about it, but since I get the same results from Trumpet
Winsock I do not expect any such knowledge to be found.
Good luck with your provider.
