Chat Script Giving up Too Early

By default pon does not wait around too long to establish a connection. Sometimes it does not wait long enough. You can introduce a longer wait (e.g., two minutes) as below.

Edit /etc/ppp/peers/provider (assuming your connection is the default, called provider) to replace:

  connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/provider"


  connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -t120 -f /etc/chatscripts/provider"

If you connection is not the default provider but something else, then edit the file with the same name in /etc/ppp/peers/.
