wvdial stays in the foreground after connecting.

either run it witha & on the end if you want to do something else with
that window, else open a new window/terminal to run your commands in.
at first it seems counter-intuitive but it makes sense once you're used to

I have a script 'netup' that I use to run it in the background with my
normal options.
