I would reccomend wvdial as the lazy way. Of course, if you're doing a thesis 
on tcp/ip and the most difficult ways of accomplishing it, fine ;-). With 
wvdial, it's all lazy,  and reliable. Even if you only reverse engineer it. 
My (local) isp cannot be reached with any chat script I've ever devised. I 
give it my username when it asks, and my password, and it won't accept them. 
When wvdial does it at speed, it's fine.
