Kingsly John - Everything You Didn't Need To Know!


Back in 2003, I was using a CDMA2000-1x mobile phone(LG2030 from Reliance Infocomm) for internet access which connected over the serial port. So though the data service was capable of speeds over 144kbps. The serial port was a bottle neck at 115kbps. (We had a similiar problem back in 1998 when the company I worked for was using an 128kbps ISDN TA but it wasn't critical back then because we rarely got to see 128kbps speeds)

I discovered viahss , a kernel module for the 2.4 series of kernels which allows to increase the speed of serial ports of Via motherboards.

I "ported"(for want of a better word) it to work with the 2.5/2.6 kernels, it wasn't much effort at all thanks mainly to excellent documentation about the differences between the kernel versions on Linux Weekly News
