When I'm connected through Windows, I can easily see what speed the modem is connected at by moving the mouse over the little dial-up networking icon. (Yes, I know it's not representative of very much). How can I find that speed when I'm dialed in under Linux?

better, you can know the speed you're actually getting...

-kppp dial program includes a througput graphic on "details"
-gkrellm is a program to monitor most of your system resources thru charts, including pppd ( i recommend this )

Hope this helps...

I don't want throughput - I can find that easily enough. I want to see what speed my modem thinks it's connecting at.

Please read the "statserial" man page.

And (I know this is not what you've asked for) this is nice as well...:

Here is one way if you are using Gnome, then:
Footprint --> Internet --> Dialup Configuration Tool

If you configure this with the phone number, login name, and password using the Edit option, the Debug option will present a window with modem connection information including the baud rate it is connecting at.
