Well, I changed to cdtrcts, and it's still messing up, though not quite
as badly.

Hmmm.  I'm connecting to the modem at 57.6K, and the modem's connection to
the ISP is usually 26.4K or 28.8K (it's a 28.8K modem).

This is the same setup that worked for years for me on my Centris 610,
before I got the cable modem and the Quadra 650.  I'm starting to think
that maybe my modem cable isn't doing the right thing (either the needs
of the hardware has changed or I somehow grabbed the printer cable by
mistake).  Does anyone have the pinout for what the current cable needs
to be?
