You'd probably know if the dropouts were caused by call waiting.  Call
waiting introduces a beep on the line when a call is waiting, and this
causes the modem to hang up.  When you hang up while a call is waiting,
your line immediately starts to ring, so if your *don't* get a ring
signal immediately after your modem hangs up it's fairly safe to assume
the dropout was *not* caused by call waiting.
