You give no details about your setup, unfortunately. Do you have a
permanent default route or does it go up and down with the dial link?

On a dial-on-demand network (a PC/Linux runs squid and another one is the Ethernet<->ISDN router), I noticed that Squid doesn't seem to like failures to connect (for instance when the remote router is down). I have to kill -HUP Squid when it happens. Mysterious.

May be wwwofle <> is better suited to dial-on-demand networks (Squid being the best for permanent links).
