I Did the same I had a list of over 20 items... the only one they added was
the start/stop Time feature. That is why I am a bit sceptical of Microsoft
with Radius. Also, I asked for feature enhancements to RAS for over 4 years
now (reporting DTE Rate & DCE Rate) and still they did not put it in. That is
why I am saying MS may not add it in.

What is so hard adding the actual connect speed string for a modem to RAS?
