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?
