Mac in Brazil: connection gets dropped immediately after PPP establishment - Mac Networking

    Default Mac in Brazil: connection gets dropped immediately after PPP establishment

    I'm trying to dial up to the Internet in Brazil with an iBook (OS
    10.2.6) using a local ISP. On three (ubbi.com.br, itelefonica.com.br,
    .br) out of four (+ ig.com.br) ISPs the connection drops
    seconds after the successful PPP establishment. With IG I always get
    about 33600 or 288000 connections, and they remain stable for hours.
    All three ISPs use local access numbers.
    What could be the cause of the connection dropping? I tried lowering the
    connection speed to 9600 bps, but connecting at 9600 didn't make a
    difference. Could it be that these ISPs *require* some specific
    connection procedure? Has anybody been using any of these Brazilian ISPs
    with a Mac (or some other non-MS OS)? Unfortunately I don't red
    Portugese that well.

    If it's like the modem in my Powerbook, it's a piece of software crap.
    Look in Google groups for many complaints about these modems. Buy a real
    external modem, and I'll bet your problem disappears.

    probably has nothing to do with brazil or the isp - sounds like either a
    bad password or incorrectly configured software (some servers require a
    command other than "ppp" to start the session, for instance, in which case
    you need a login script).

    the easiest way to troubleshoot is to log in with a terminal programme
    (a.k.a. "command line") and watch what happens. the standard ppp login
    prompts for userid first, then password, and then gives a command prompt,
    which usually requires "ppp" or similar to start the session. error
    messages like "invalid password" or "bad command" shouldn't be too hard to
    figure out, even in portuguese.

    and once you can connect manually, fixing the settings isn't so hard.
