NTLK Problem roaming with Freewwweb

I was on a short vacation last weekend in Virginia Beach. At some point,
I've tried connecting to the web through freewwweb to get my email. I
was never able to get a connection, and would always get a "PPP
negotiation failed" error, while trying to dial the VA Beach local
access number.

Desperate, I've then made a long distance to Herndon, to the local
access number I'm using and did connect immeditately on my first
attempt. I had to pick this local access number when I originally signed
with freewwweb, and now it seems I'm stucked with that number and the
system won't let me dial in from any other number.

So, what does that mean? I can't dial in using other local access
number, but my local one? I've thought I would be able to access
freewwweb from anywhere they provide a local access number, but that
doesn't seem to be true.

BTW, the internet setup I used for VA Beach was a duplicate from the
Herndon's one I have. I've just replaced the phone number, so I believe
that it was good.

Any idea from other freewwweb Newton users?
