at 64k and 128k those speeds are about correct...for example

128k=128,000 bits

divide 128,000 by 8 (128,000/8) and you get 16,000 Bytes...which is 16Kbps...

So 16Kbps is the highest you can get on a 128k isdn line...once you add in TCP overhead that accounts for only get 13k..sorry man, thats your max

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
