I would also be interested in this, but I don't have 2 28.8 V.34 modems. I
read an article that implied "beware of cheapo V.34 modems", because they
don't have to implement all of the V.34 features and they still can call
themselves V.34. I have a rockwell based and an ATT based V.34; I
can't telll the speed difference between the two while calling my internet
provider (who has USRobotics DSP based V.34's with the newest code), but
char throughput (like, on FTP) can be as high as 2.5 kcps,,, which is pretty
amazing..Incidentally, the way CuSeeme video is compressed might benefit
from modem compression, i'll bet...but the audio might not...hopefully, I'll
find out. My Internet provider doesn't like to provide slip, and "can't"
provide CSLIP...
