i would like to run a modem with my hp345. it's a 33600baud modem.
but somehow i can run it only at 2400baud. that's even too slow for

when i enter a "higher" speed for pppd (like 33600 or 28800 or so),
i get a 

Aug 23 17:04:53 phoenix pppd[534]: pppd 2.3.0 started by root, uid 0
Aug 23 17:04:54 phoenix pppd[534]: tcsetattr: Invalid argument

i just get the "invalid argument" error when i play around with
with the speed option (now pppd dosn't connect).

so, what speeds are allowed?
is there a limitation due to the serial port?

19800 doesn't raise an error, and i get connected, but it is approx.
as slow as 2400baud.

any suggestions?

(btw, what is the best www browser that runs with a reasonable speed
on an hp345 (68030, 50.000.000 cycles?)
