dialup users - check your flow control

so this friend of mine was having all kinds of problems with her video,
very choppy updates, lots of packet loss, she got new modem, more memory,
nothing helped, then I had a thought, check the flow control in PPP, it
was set to NONE! she changed it to CTS/RTS, now she's moving in real-time.
it's important to note that her net connection still worked without flow
control, she was just losing lots of packets, didn't even notice it doing
email and stuff. I've seen lots of people on reflectors with similar video,
I'll bet they have the same problem...
