I've experienced this once I think on IOL. However the main problem
with IOL is on average (in my experience using either doze or Linux
from 3 different lines/modems/POPs) you only get 60% of the time.
Note the base call is connected (so Eircom get 14c straight away), the
modems train and that's it.
ISDN would probably be better though as it's more standard?
