[Updated] PPP Rx errors...
Well... I have continued to play with this...switching between suse and
debian...and have been able to partially fix the problem.
By setting my wvdial baud rate down to 57600 from 115200 i get only
1 error in 1000 packets... which is respectable...
However, I would still like to know why 115200 works without a single
error on the SuSE setup...but with the same settings debian gives me
I am using an external USR v.everything modem on a 16550A serial port...
The SuSE box was 6.4 with a 2.2.14 kernel..and the debian box is potato
with the 2.2.15 kernel... all the versions seem to be the same (wvdial,
any ideas? anyone?
