I read somewhere that if your modem is running hardware compression, you
should not run software compression as it will not be effective and slow
transfer rates down.

Subject: software compression


I started a new ISP recently and have a question that may be a
on the dumb side. When Win95 users set up to access the internet
through my system they have to set software compression off in their

modem properties. Why is this and would it speed things up if there

was some way of enabling it?

Thanks for the help
