I'm using Red Hat's PPP Dialer. I use Gnome window system, if that helps at all.

Also, what I just noticed is that the problem ocurred last night when I was logged in as root. This morning when I was logged in as a regular guy, it disconnected fine. I've only been online a few times, so maybe I need to investigate this further. But if you have any ideas in the meantime, that'd be great!
