RE: [wuhu_software_group] Re: CWOP Failure
Since my major crash back in May the connection has been randomly disconnection, and for that reason I have it set to redial if the connection is lost. If you have any suggestions I will try them, if not I will contact usadatanet see what they suggest as a solution to that part of the problem.

I am now leaning toward an issue with dialup...
Does the connection auto-dial or more importantly disconnect after a
given period of inactivity?
