+ Sometimes, on a noisy phone line or even on a line with
+ call waiting enabled, your modem may hang up because it
+ thinks (incorrectly) that it lost carrier.
+
+ <p>
+ There's a setting on most modems for determining how tolerant
+ it should be to temporary losses of carrier. On a USR
+ Sportster for example, this is measured by the S10 register in
+ tenths of a second. To make your modem more forgiving, you could
+ add the following send-expect sequence to your dial string:

+ set dial "...... ATS10=10 OK ......"
+</verb>

+ Refer to your modems manual for details.
