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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
