Irena & Richard Jenkins,

I am not sure if I am in a dip group, but dont think so, 
I bring up a termainal window then type sudo wvdial, and auto connects
to my dialup isp at 11500 kbps but I have no reference on time on the net and amount
used in kbs, so that is why I am asking cause the kppp and pppp both show this??????
