It's amazing you can get anything at all...You're on a 14kbps modem trying
to push 16kbps worth of data thru it. I guess it could be possible with
compression, but I wouldn't count on it. Upgrading to a 28.8kbps modem or
better would help tremendously. I'd recommend the lower bandwidth audio
codecs with the White Pine version of CU, but with only a 486-40, I'm not
sure you could run 2.X very well.
