Internet disconnection using Suse 9.3

Hi all,
I have a Suse 9.3 in a dual boot computer with win xp. The installation has been successful. Only a quirk. Each time i log the Internet, the connection lasts 10 - 20 minutes and close and in Windows all works fine.
You know in my place ADSL hasn't been made avalaible unlike expensive sat dsl. And I log my ISP without set myself DNS WINS and other filters. In case it can be helpful my isp is Tele 2.
Have you any help?

Thanks in advance,
enrico Dini

Dial-up??? If you have dial-up internet on SuSE, that's not a bug, it's a feature.... ... Seriously, though, if you are using KPPP to connect, it has a time-out to prevent toll charges for phone use. It can't even be de-activated... Use Kinternet, or soemthing similar to that name, instead...

I'm actually using kinternet, but the problem lasts. This is the kinternet log:

I hope you understand better than me the problem. My modem is a Creative Modem Blaster V92 serial 56k.

Call YAST for internet setup. Somwhere in the panels there is a check box labelled "stupid mode on". Check that and try again.

You can also edit wvdial.conf directly and set "stupid mode = 1".
