Be careful what you are asking for. Much of
the time people interchange baud and bits per second (bps), but they are
quite different. Baud rate it the maximum number of changes that can
occur per second in the electrical state of a communication circuit.
With lower communication rates the baud rate is likely to equal the bps
rate but at high baud rates, the number of bps transmitted is usually
twice the baud rate because two bits of data can be sent with each
change. Therefore the transfer rate of modems is usually stated in
Enough back ground. What you are probably trying to
ask is how can I tell how fast I am connected to my ISP? After you
connect to your ISP, a icon will appear in the lower right hand corner of
your screen next to the clock. It will look like two monitor with
green screens. Double click on the icon and it will tell you how
fast you are connected in bps.
