Slackware 10.1 and usb modem

I just installed Slack 10.1. I'm using the plain vanilla 2.6.10 kernel. The system is an early (usb 1.0) ecs k7s5a with a xp2100 cpu and 2 -256 ddr memory sticks. Actiontec usb call waiting modem. Belkin 4 port usb switch. Everything works. The only issue I have run into is this:

When I hang up the modem in KPPP, it will not re-initialize again, actually it tries to but fails to. Sometimes I can just tap the usb switch and disconnect it for a minute, then go back to this system's channel. The modem lights up the yellow and red led's and usually I can re-connect. The Green modem light stays on throughout this.

Now in mini-com. there is no problem. It will dial every time. This issue just came up after the new 10.1 was installed.

Is this a kppp issue?

modem not resetting

I thought I solved this problem earlier, but it came back. Now in order to reset the modem, I run this script as root.

/etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug stop
/etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug start

the modem lights up and starts working again. I did use a usb switch to reset it before. But that won't help someone who doesn't have a switch.
