I have a USRobotics Sportster ISDN External TA which will connect to to the net and then
when ping the other side of the PPP connection I get:
64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=0 ttl=255 time=72.707 ms
64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=70.044 ms

64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=12 ttl=255 time=70.095 ms
I have NO idea why every second ping is getting lost.....
I have hardware flow control on, and apart from loosing the pings,
(and I assume every other traffic packet)
The connection is fine.
