    I wonder if your ISP uses CHAP and or PAP authorisation. Have you anything in /etc/ppp/chap-secrets and/or /etc/ppp/pap-secrets ?

    I must be honest, I don't know how you fill either of these files when using wvdial (apart from using a text editor), but I think that kppp does it for you (if you have KDE).

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
