Oh, so with the Generic firmware you do get a good persistent
connection but not with the Sprint firnmware?


Sprint firmware is unusable on the mc7455  on any system.  Generic firmware
is the only one that works with sprint when not authorized by sprint.

I'm using generic firmware.   Its just a little known loophole that works.
The problem is its not working with modem manager for some reason after an
ifup broadband.  It will work for hours but then if a connection drops and
you need to ifup, I start getting the error you saw.
