Is there any advantage to PPP over SLIP for Win CU-SeeMe?

My configuration:

Make/Model/ of video card : N/A
Make/Model/ of audio card : Sound Blaster 16
Make/Model/ of camera : N/A
Make/Model/ of microphone : N/A
Version of CU-SeeMe used : W0.65b2
Name/Version of TCP/IP Driver : Trumpet Winsock 2.0 Revision A
Type of Internet connection : SLIP/ 28.8K

My Problems:

Program Start-up : OK
Connect to Reflector : OK; NYSERNET seems to perform better than cornell
Video Send : N/A
Video Receive : typical: 0 fps and 04K;
best so far: 15 fps @ 27k (from pretty "nantucket")
Audio Send : N/A
Audio Receive : From occasional burps to "almost intelligible"
