Yes, well spotted! Thanks, I'd forgotten about default ppp options, that tweak works for me too. So the problem is 2-fold:

1. The "PPP echo" option in the UI is not implemented, and stays off.
2. Nothing overrides the default PPP (LCP) echo options, so even though the UI says off, if the default is on, echos are still sent.

Is it a common feature of broadband modems not to handle LCP echo properly? I guess it's not really needed anyway.
