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.
