Looks to be correct.  I double checked in Fedora 10 and Fedora 11 and it is about the same.  I did not check selinux contexts though :(

You are connecting via dialup or wireless broadband?
 
 DSL

How long does the connection last?
 
 seems to vary  ( with each installation )
 
 If you do a restart ?
something like
# service NetworkMangager stop
# service NetworkManager start

doesn't help.

take a look at output of
# ifconfig -a

and/or system logs to find what is causing this.  also dmesg can see if a driver or kernel module caused the stoppage?

dmesg doesn't seem to be much help, but i found something i cropped from messages:

i looked for /root/.ppprc , to stat it, but it doesn't exist.
