i am new to macs - have a powerbook G3 laptop and am having trouble connecting to my ISP - and when i do get connected (usually at 48000 bps), i get disconnected fairly easily. the two error messages i get most frequently are "no carrier signal" and "remote access side not responding properly" - itis not uncommon to get these messages seven times in a row, and then connect without a problem on the eighth try. sometimes i will stay connected for hours, but most often i get disconnected within a half-hour.
for the modem (internal 56K)/protocol options, i have the boxes checked for error correction and compression, and for TCP header compression.
