Doesn't say which modem! I get error 16 when my isp cuts me off, and my

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