     I found my minicom connections very slow, although the default
serial port setting is supposed to be 38.4 kb.  I fixed it with the
following command at the shell prompt:
          setserial /dev/ttyS1 spd_vhi 

     (The device name depends on where your modem is located).
/etc/init.d//setserial saves the serial port settings when you
shutdown, and restores them on bootup.

     Another place to check is minicom configuration.  In minicom,
CTRL A O, choose "Serial port setup".
