Slow and Stalled PPP connection

Slow and Stalled PPP connection

Post by bo.. » Thu, 18 Feb 1999 04:00:00

I have RedHat 5.1 and I could get my PPP connection up and running. But
for some
reason my PPP connection is damn slow (700 bytes/sec at BEST) and stalls
now and then. I have a Zoom V.90 external FAX modem. Under Windows 95
the speed is very good.

I tried asyncmap 0, different mru and mtu values in /etc/ppp/options.

I used minicom and used ATI11 (for Zoom) and it reports the initial
speed as 46,600 bps and the lights on the modem show that 56K is the
speed. Yet my connection is terribly slow.

I am getting vexed. I suspect that some buffers might be getting full.

I hope that the Linux community has some help to offer.



1. linux ppp slow rh6.1 & netscape stall

Apparently the fix for this is to use the "novj" option for pppd. This
is done in kde using the "setop"
menu in the Kppp dialer, then "pppd arguments".
Seems to fix the problem on my machine, but can't be entirely sure, due
the the unpredictable-intermittent
nature of the problem. See man page for pppd for what you're actually
doing here.
