A side note.......
If he has a 14.4 modem, 14.4 is all he's going to get. The "faster"
speeds both of you are quoting refers only to the DCE-DTE speeds
(i.e. in between the PC and the modem), NOT out to the rest of the world.

You have a 14.4 modem and you're not connecting at 57.6 baud??? You're losing
out on 19,000 average bit tranfers per second (BPS)!!! Your transfer/receive
settings look good, so everything *should* work properly from YOUR end. I hope
the reflectors (or sites) your connecting to support the features you're using!
The "Message-Of-The-Day" (MOTD) of each reflector *usually* posts addresses
for Email questions. Maybe they can help, if not this mailing list!

Good luck,
