Very odd behaviour dialing ISP
Computer: IBM ThinkCentre (P4, 3GHz, 1GB RAM), AT external modem, Display = IBM 865G, Monitor = Phillips 170B flat, HD = Maxtor 6Y080L0 80 GB, Mouse = USB, Sound = C-Media Electronics CMI8738/C3DX card, currently multi-booting SUSE 9.1,
Mandriva LE2005 and FreeBSD 5.3
When dialing out, in Mandriva LE2005 (newly reinstalled), using..
(a) KPPP from the menu - I get rows of boxes, very slow dial out, finally no connection.
(b) (Left click the) Network Monitoring screen | Connect Modem -I get immediate dialing but after exactly 19 seconds, typcially, a failure to connect. Periodically however, I get a connection.
(c) (RIght click the) Network Monitoring icon in the system tray | Connection ppp0 - I get a connection about half the time and the other times no connection.
Very green. Can anybody help me please?
