Re: ppp hangups...
Could be noise on the phone line, though there's not too much to be done about it. If stability is your main concern you could connect at a lower speed (YUK!). Or if it's really bad, (ie you can hear noise when talking on the phone) you can call your phone company. I'd recommend against that option though... If your phone company is anything like ours, not only will they charge you for the visit, any line which can support a 2400bps conection is considered good, so they are more than likley going to tell you that the line is fine.... (Yay USWorst!)

I've been getting dropped from my ISP unexpectedly from time to time
and I'm not sure how to go about debugging it. There is nothing
unusual in syslog or messages, but I noticed this in ppp.log. (kernel
2.2.12 pppd 2.3p5). Any debugging tips would be greatly appreciated!

Is it just because things are hairy on the ISP end? As soon as I dial
back in, everything works fine again (and there is no apparent time
interval for which this happens).
I know about the lcp-echo options and will play around with them, but
I'm hoping someone can tell me whats going on behind the curtain here.
