I've been having problems too. With 1.3.100, 1.99.5 and maybe 1.3.91 (I
didn't use it very long) my ppp sessions nearly always hang the first time,
within a couple minutes of initiation. The second time they get more stable,
espeically after the first few minutes. I'm also getting lousy interactive
performance nearly all the time, when I telnet to my provider to do email.
Like right now, each keystroke takes a second or two to take effect, and if
I type fast the typing shows up in bursts spaced apart by 1 or 2 seconds.
My provider uses a Sun and I've heard there was trouble for a while
with interactive performance between Linux and some suns. I'm running
Linux on a 386, and it sure seems slower in general than it used to so that
could be all that's wrong, I'm running too many processes or something.
