Thanks for your comments, I am having the same problem (connects for 2 seconds and then disconnects) and have already tried everything you suggested. When it dials it has the letter "T" in front of the number. Does everyone have that? If not, how can I get rid of it?
Also, sometimes when I click on the connection I created, it says:
"REMOTE NETWORKING - Invalid paramter on command line"
It doesn't do this all the time, I usually have to go through that error message three or four times and then it mysteriously works.
One more also, I have the local country code set to: 1
Is this messing me up?
Anyone who can help it would be greatly appreciated.
