That explains why my pppd link to my falcon refuses the 76.8 and
153.6 rates?  Was forced to back it down to 38.4 to keep pppd

I just tried Jo's idea and I was using MiNT at 230k, it did
seem to drop a packet or to more often than 115k and didn't
seem much faster.  I think the problems are either the modem
itself or something on the isp end or just crappy lines.  I cannot
get any cps rates people are saying "I should be getting".
It's always 2.3k max regardless of what I do.
