I'm using chat and pppd to connect to my ISP through my USRobitcs 56k
modem on LinuxPPC. My problem is my connection seems slower than it is
on the mac side.
I have /dev/ttyS0 set to 230400 baud through stty.
I have setserial flagged at spd_vhi (though this isn't neccesary)
My pppd options include '115200' (for some reason 230400 won't work),
'crtscts' and 'bsd_cmp 15,15' i think these are the relevant settings.
the chat log reports that i am connection above 50000 so i'm guessing
the problem is with pppd.
so, any ideas what the problem could be?
btw, does anyone know a reliable way to check modem connection speeds?
I've been judging from ftp transfers, and netscape loadings.
