Reconnected to Windows and same thing -- no /detectable/ disconnects.
That is, the little modem lights in the systray never get the
superimposed red X. anyway Windows is not set to automatically
reconnect, and I have not had to manually reconnect. That's why I
thought it was something to do with rp-pppoe. I am using yawmppp to
monitor the connection and it has a little clock displaying the
connection time and an error message when disconnected. The time
rarely exceeds a couple of minutes and mozilla often complains of a
host not found.

Do others have the same experience? Suggested fixes?
It works fine at my parents house - it's sometimes even up for several
days at a stretch, although usually they're kicked off every two days
so, and it has to reconnect.
Has this combination worked before, or is this the first attempt?
because it sounds like a noisy line or something making the connection
drop. You can play with various settings in pppoe to work aroud it,
a filter or something may be the way to go.
Not sure that was helpful,
Would be if it was the same in windows. That's why I wonder if there
is any tune-up of rp-pppoe possible.
I'm working with a Belkin router and I've had a couple of disconnects
and reconnects this month, but nothing since this:
2004/09/09 07:37:59 PPPoE receive PADS
2004/09/09 07:37:59 PPPoE start PPP
2004/09/09 07:38:00 Username and Password : OK
2004/09/09 07:38:05 PPPoE get IP : 151.197.xxx.xx
Complete IP obscured since I don't know how long I'll have it :).
Verizon tends to have spates of down times and then long runs of no
problems at all from the Germantown CO. I suspect different COs have
different ups and downs.
