Mouse sits => ppp stalls

I have redhat 5.1 installed, along with netscape communicator. I can connect everytime to my ISP, load webpages, and get my mail using communicator AS LONG AS I CONTINUOUSLY MOVE THE MOUSE! 3-5 seconds after the mouse stops moving, the connection stalls. If I start moving the mouse again, the connection starts up again. How do I fix this problem?

Putting 0.0.0.0 in as the local default address doesn't help. I am using the netcfg in the config panel in X Windows to set up the ppp connection. I have wasted about 5 hours on this one, with no luck.

Note: ISP connection via OS/2 or Win95 works fine.

Both experts were right! I did not know that Linux could not automatically recognize the internal modem set for 03e8 irq5.

BTW, I found a easy way to set the modem each time in Linux. Simply add the following statement to rc.local:

/bin/setserial /dev/cua2 auto_irq skip_test autoconfig

My mouse mystery is solved. Thanks.
