I tried everything, PAP, CHAP, that MS-thinggy, self-made login-scripts.
Nothing works; but I do think Clifford Kite got a point saying that there is
some IRQ misconfiguration: I'm gonna check that out first (I never thought
of it, because it works, that is, it 'dials' :) ). My login-failures took
like 5 min. before something happens (disconnection), while normally my
connection is made in smt like 15 seconds (other operating system).

Btw, my PAP (& CHAP, just in case :) ) are ok, all fields have entries.
