Is that your problem or something else. BTW,
I used sudo wvdial under 2.4.18-bf2.4 from woody for the longest
time. If you check Bug #276020 filed against the 2.6.8 kernel on
debian.org, I appear to have the same problem. The darn thing just won't
stay connected! Under the 2.6.11 686 7 kernel from unstable, I got
intermittent connection under pon, the connection would hold long enough
to be usuable but would periodically drop and have to reconnect. I'm not
sure that is a solution. I read your thread with perhaps a similar
problem when I googled for it. I probably have it in my email in the
digest but am behind on my reading the digests. Even the digests for
Debian User are high Volume!
