RE: How do I manually set the MTU on a PPP Connection?
Thanks for the clarification on the whole wvdial thing.
Far as the setting, no it was not set to 0, it was commented out. I still
have no idea why my MTU was set to 0. I had no firewall software running on
the machine at the time. Only the default min. load of Debian "linux26" and
Ether way, your fix worked. Thanks a ton! I will have more questions later
about automating some of my tasks, but I want to try to figure them out on
my own first :)
This list has been great!

It isn't "pppd or wvdial". Wvdial is a pppd configurator.

Edit /etc/ppp/options. You should find a line reading '#mtu <n>'.
If the line reads 'mtu 0' you've found your problem (though I don't know
how it would have gotten changed). In any case, make it 'mtu 1492'.
I suspect that your firewall script may be setting the mtu to 0, though.
