Sorry, but I can't help you for 2 reasons:

1) The terms "dial up" and "dial out" have very specific meanings in the telephone modem world, but SIMS doesn't know anything about modems (unless there is a hidden feature I have not found) so "dial" problems are not directly related to SIMS.

2) You can't "dial out" to an IP address - you dial a phone number. Also, none of the log entries you provided show the IP you refer to.

You might want to either rephrase your question or describe your physical connection to the internet. Otherwise, the question you have posed makes no sense to me.
