Yep, modems can be a major PIA.
Given that you have set up a dual-boot machine, double check in CrashXX, to
make sure where the modem is really and then re-check this to your "wudial,"
Or, try out the same setting on kppp, I find is a rather stable wee proggy.
But if that does not work, my praise of kppp, may start a flame war, which
will cause others to come out of cyber space & give you some other tips,
about dial-up software they use..... ;-)
Hope some of this helps.
I say again, modems can be a PIA.
The birds are singing, the flowers are budding, and it is time for Miss
Manners to tell young lovers to stop necking in public.
It's not that Miss Manners is immune to romance. Miss Manners has been
known to squeeze a gentleman's arm while being helped over a curb, and,
in her wild youth, even to press a dainty slipper against a foot or two
under the dinner table. Miss Manners also believes that the sight of
people strolling hand in hand or arm in arm or arm in hand dresses up a
city considerably more than the more familiar sight of people shaking
umbrellas at one another. What Miss Manners objects to is the kind of
activity that frightens the horses on the street ...
(well it is so, in the Southern Hemisphere, viz spring.)
