Thanks so much for your reply.  The frustrating part of this problem is not even
knowing the right questions to ask.  I initially did not change my modem, which
was the 33.6 multitech that comes for the ECS line.  I went out and bought a 
Hayes modem, but that didn't solve the problem.  I don't think it is a modem
problem either because I am connecting, but the IBM Support Line people think it
is a modem issue.  They don't say why they think it is a modem issue, and I am
struggling not to say anything nasty.  I am using a connection script.  The ISP
indicated they went from a single com server to a pool, which makes me wonder if
I should change the dial profile to *Dynamic.  This requires a new connection
script, which I cannot figure out, and once again the support line says requires
a consult line contract.
