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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
