How low do you think it should go ? It certainly beats the pants off the
140ms (at very best) that I get with my Surf No Limits connection on a 56K
modem (I know about modem latencies, but that's to the other end of my P-t-P
connection, for Gawd's sake - I just did a quick check, and got an average
of 205ms and I suppose modem latency will be about 100ms)
Stop Press - I just had a quick Google and read something which said that an
internal ISDN adapter will get you 25-30 ms and an external TA will get
50-60 ms so you seem to be in the ball park.
