yes, i can dial in, but i get disconnected after about 30 seconds,
which is (i guess) because my provider isn't picking up my part of
a ppp conversation (which, of course, i am not sending either).

this strikes me as legitimate behaviour. and do not forget: the
external modem works just fine when serially connected to the laptop.

there are no differences.

thanks for your time in any case!
