Can only get serial modem to connect at 9K
I have recently installed SUSE Linux 10.0 on my computer and I use a (dial-up) modem connected to my serial port (ttyS0). When I configured KPPP for the modem I specified a speed of 40K, but my connection to WANADOO is only giving me 9K. I used to get a much faster connection, but since installing SUSE it is really slow. Am I missing something basic?
I've only been using Linux since January so I'm still a beginner.
Also, (I don't know if this is related) after I have connected I get a message saying that "Netapplet" crashed and I can't get it to run again.
I'd appreciate any help,
