further to the above.  I did get my modems working together. Technically
you're supposed to be able to get up to 400kbps but I've only ever managed
to get about 14.20 KB/sec using ttcp.  If the modems are too close together,
I get worse throughput.  I have one downstairs and one upstairs and can
get 14KB/sec...  I still prefer 802.11 far and away.
