Hi guys,

i´m really new at Linux but i managed to set it up in my Localnet and now i wnat it to connect to my ISp using PPP with PAP.
No Problem i really can get a connecvtion to my ISP an can ftp to it and all other things like connecting to ftp servers and so on. But te problem i have is when i make a ping every 2. packet is lost! And the connect rate to the ftp server from my ISP is only 0.25 K max. Normaly it is 7.0K (i use a external USR ISDN TA).

Can anyone of you guys please help me????

Cya,

try (before connecting):  setserial /dev/cua? spd_vhi
(where cua? is the appropriate serial port that your TA is
on.)

Since you are making a good connection to your ISP, you can
have them look at the logs for their terminal server, and tell
you what is happening with your connection.  

You might also turn on debugging, and see what your syslog
reports.  Are you connecting at 115,200?  For ISDN, I'd also
set a few additional pppd options 1) mru 556 and 2) -vj (disable
Van Jacobsen CSLIP compression.)  These two things significantly
improved my performance (I use a Bitsurfer though, but these
are recommended for any TA afaik)
