Hey everyone!
I've been having a problem getting a reliable internet connection with my Archtek 5634BTV having a TI chipset. When I get a connection, it usually lasts for a few minutes and then my throughput stops, but when I lift the receiver, I still hear the modem noise. It seems that I usually get a connection that works like this, but then sometimes I can't get any connection at all. I'm currently having this problem using Redhat 9, but I've had exactly the same problem with Debian and FreeBSD. I'm pretty sure it's not a PPP configuration problem or an ISP problem because my brother gets a connection just fine with the same distrobution, the same setup, and the same ISP. Any help you can give will definitely be appreciated, and if you need any more information please let me know. Thanks!

I haven't ever used Linux with dialup .... all my connections have been ethernet for the last 5 years!)...but it looks like there may be a driver for Linux that works here:
