I just bypass it here anyway. And do it manually once every week or 2

This happened to me when I changed provider.
My dial script wasn't perfect and modem change also.

Send me your dial script. (chat script I mean)

Also, you shouldn't need to reboot the whole computer, Just unplug the
modem power-cord if that happens.

3) to disconnect, the best way I found is:
edit a new file called pppd_off for example in your /usr/ucb

in it:
kill -1 `cat /var/run/ppp0.pid`

That's all  and you can drag that to your
internet THING group (very nice from taskbar :)))

oh actually. you need to drag sh in your taskbar and assign your
/usr/ucb/pppd_off script as argument to sh from THING desktop.

works very well.
