it'll get rid of the error messages, but it won't speed up your internet. To
get ppp to use those compression modules you need to pass the appropriate
commandline arg or else set it in your /ppp/options file. For BSD
compression i think it's
# ppp options file
n < 16, and determines the level of compression. something like 12 is
reasonable. ppp_deflate is something similar, see the man page.
However i don't think ISP's actually support either ppp_deflate or bsd_comp,
cause i've never noticed a difference with either of them enabled or
