ok, a modem.  but....

There's not a single line in there that talks about a ppp0 device, which
will be what a modem uses in modern connections (you aren't using slip,
are you?)

In my experience, I avoid a LOT of problems by bringing down the
ethernet connection then doing the dial-up.  Bring the ethernet
connection back up once you disconnect.

If by modem, you meant "cable-modem" or "dsl-modem", then none of what I
wrote above applies to you.

    will know my name is root, when I lay my vengeance upon you.
