    SubjectPPP errors???

    During long transfers, I will occasionally get periods of no Rx activity
    from my ISP over my 28.8 modem. Whenever one of these pauses occurs, the
    error count will go up according to ifconfig:

    ppp0 Link encap:Point-Point Protocol
    inet addr:204.157.98.154 P-t-P:204.157.98.30
    Mask:255.255.255.0
    UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:908 errors:12 dropped:12 overruns:0
    TX packets:1448 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0

    These errors occur often enough to take the transfer rate down
    considerably below 2 K/s. I 'm beginning to wonder why I have a 28.8....

    It's an external USR Sportster 28.8 connected to a serial card with
    16550 UARTs.

    Any ideas?
