I use a terminal window and typr
sudo wvdial and it then reads my hardware modem and connects
with 11500 kbps calling 019833788 my isp and shows conection,
I then when I want to disconnect type in cntrl c in the same terminal
window? ,so all I want is the same to do when I use kppp or ppp as dialup
to show time online and amount off data exchanged at the rate of 11500,
but when I use the kppp or ppp it only connects at 56kbps????
