PPP going bad

This one has been bothering me for a couple months now.  I've tried nearly every combination of options or anything
else I can think of (including resetting modem init strings)
I can get my PPP connection up and running fine and it lasts
for a bit.  If I run a ping session I get about 100-200 normal pings.  Then I start getting pings like

118  270ms
119  154980ms
120  233980ms
121  312980ms
122  391980ms
123  470980ms

And they keep going up.  90% go up by 79000ms per ping.
The packet loss is tremendous.  How can I get this running?

Do you get any errors in the system logs? Does ifconfig show ppp0 is dropping packets??

Try checking your routing with route -n. Does it al make sense?
