I've been using wvdial and a us robotics external dialup modem on Mint9. Worked fine until a few days ago--but now it won't connect--I'm getting error code 16: "The link was terminated by the modem hanging up"

Haven't made any changes lately to wvdial.conf, no new sw installed, nothing. Any tips on how to fix? Any log or config files I should check?

I'm assuming this is a sw problem and not a modem problem--but is there a way to confirm the modem itself is OK? The light still comes on, so there's no obvious modem problem--it's us robotics 5637, 2-yrs old.

Thanks for help--
