I've got an external Sportster 28.8 and also connect at 26K like you did.

For what it's worth, here's a few pieces of my custom "online" program:

setserial /dev/cua2 uart 16550a port 0x3E8 irq 9 baud_base 115200 spd_hi       ## 57.6 Kb
ABORT           BUSY
ABORT           'NO CARRIER'
ABORT           ERROR
ABORT           'NO DIAL TONE'
ABORT           'NO ANSWER'
''                  AT&F1S56.7=1DT$PHONE
CONNECT         ''
            exec /usr/sbin/pppd /dev/cua2 38400 \
                asyncmap 0 \
                connect "chat -v -f $CHAT" \
        modem \
                mru 1576 \
                lock \
                crtscts \
                defaultroute \
I doubt if YOU need that S56.7=1 thing, but it might be worth a try.
I tried a zillion things until I found that magic bullet for my modem.
Line-dropping problems have many sources.  Bad "AT" settings (I've seen it).
Bad phone lines (I think I've seen it).  Bad "chemistry" between
ISP's modem and user's modem.


1. Sportster problem under Linux

I am having problem's dialing out in Red Hat 6.0 with my USR Sportster 56k
Faxmodem (internal PNP). I set it up in modemtool and then go to netcfg just
to see if it will dial, i set the DNS's and everything, and create a new
interface (or dialing account or whatever), and when I hit active, nothing
happens. It just sits there, please help.
