Sorry to jump in here, but this thread has been going for a while and nobody's mentioned this as far as I can tell:

If you were to get yourself an external serial modem of decent make/quality, you will never have any of these problems. You mention you just want to get on the net, so it may be an option for you to just grab a "real" modem as opposed to the cheap soft modem that is in your system?
