I've done that, but it seems to works just fine, until I try do access
anything outside my computer.

I've seen this slowdown for quite a while, and I dial up a lot. And it
is very unlikely I've had line noise, since I'm dialling locally on
campus. And I have been dialling up for 2 years, and I have been having
problems just lately. No, it is not a phone-line problem. I know this
for sure, since SLIP works *great* in 1.3.68, but is pretty bad in 1.3.85
and this being tested the same day.
