Doesn't say which modem! I get error 16 when my isp cuts me off, and my 
system works. Username/password/search path?

Everything snipped seems ok. What does wvdial.conf say ? Strip your user name 
& password if you paste it into a reply. Check aso the PPP-HOWTO from section 
10 or so (describing /etc/hosts, host.conf, resolv.conf). Query your modem if 
you can

You can set debug=on with pppd to find out a little more.
