Oh yeah. This started happening to me with the change to 7.6, which
moved me from MacTCP to OT. Download speeds have been great, but
uploading the speed starts out about 2K a second and drops quickly,
not because the transfer rates are slow, but because the communication
only happens in bursts, which get further and further apart, eventually
ending up with my Terminal Adaptor hanging.

I posted something at one point to the communications newsgroup, but
to no avail. I was kind of hoping that the new version of OT in OS8
would solve things, but it hasn't.

can you provide a bit more info -- system, type of network access (PPP or direct link), which version of OT (1.2 is current), what type modem, have you checked the modem drivers for an update (Global Village has released an update since MacOS 8), what application are you using when the hang occurs.

Thanks

I am not sure what modem, it is an internal modem that comes with t my Performa 6400 180, I am pretty sure it is a Global Village.  I am using Free PPP, I am using the version of OT that installs with OS 8.  Can I get the update from Global Village's Homepage?  I will try that.

Yes the drivers are available on "www.globalvillage.com".  You have to dig down a bit in the site -- "software locator" is the best place to start on the first page, then work your way down based on the type of machine you have.  It will show the latest version and give you a chance to download the update file.

One other thing to check.  Be sure the Memory Control Panel has plenty of "disk cache" set ... sometimes this gets reset to 96k (I use 2048k) and results in a general slowdown of disk access.

If the Disk Cache is set correctly (1024k or 2048k should be fine) then I think the problem is in the Global Village driver (I helped two other Performa users update their drivers and it worked fine from that point on).

I did change my cache and it helped.  I also went to apple's site and they had plenty of info on what setting I should have on my modem.  The performa 6400 page really helped me
