Dial Up modem issue in Slackware 10.

I'm (at the moment) using a US Robotics Performance Pro modem ... which on the box says it supports linux. I'm running slackware 10 with a 2.4 kernel. I've tried several different dialup numbers...yet no matter what I try, it always connects at 9600 bps. Very slow... Yet on windows, I get about 53.2kbps always. I've used this modem on other distros in the past without a problem...and it actually usually ran faster in linux than windows.

I'm using Kppp to connect...what could be the problem?

Help very much apreciated.

I have a relatively similar problem, unsolved to date
