I have a 5300c with a best data pc card modem. I am running ppp.System 7.5.1 When I try the set the baud rate at anything above 56 the machine gives me a prompt which tell me that those rates are not supported except on an internal modem or the printer port. What's the deal here?

As you cannot connect at anything faster than a 56k conenction, I don't see anything unusual about that prompt. Setting the connection speed any faster will not speed anything up.

The 56K that is mentioned.Is it the modem speed? or are you talking about the rate at which the computer talks to the modem, this should be 115,000K for a 56K modem.
This also works for my 28K modem.
