I want to know if there is some way to know which is exactly the bit rate on my linux system when i'm downloading som package.. Because i do not believe that windows95 is faster . eg: when i dowload something with wsftp at windows95 the bit rate that wsftp says is between 29Kbit/s and 31Kbit/s, and when using FileRunner at Linux with the same Internet provider, and  the same ftp site (sunsite)FileRunner says 1.8KByte/s and 2.2Kbyte/seg aproximatelly (2.2Kbyte/s=18Kbit/s).
there is a difference of 10Kbit/s!!!
at me /etc/rc.d/rc.serial i did configure my modem like 1550A uart spd_vhi, (28.800).
do I need to configurate something else??

Are you shure both connections had used the same baudrate?
Check the CONNECT message.
Are you also shure that both programs count the same things?
I suggest to check in each docu what it claims to count:
   the overall bitrate as is,
   just the data send/recieved without compression and/or header

That might be a big difference.

Also keep in mind that your modem may reduce speed depending on the noice of the phone line. Check your modem what happens there.

The phone line is the same 'cuz is the same computer (but differents partitions). But i think i know understand the phenomenun:
- It seems to be faster because, winbugs95 have level priorities for it's applications, and it seems to handle different buffer sizes than Linux, i think that Linux handles a bigger buffer so that refreshment on the byte rate counter is slower than at winBugs.
:)
thx you very much anyway ahoffmann :)
