I am using eCS 1.2. My ISP is via Wireless broadband and I am connected to the inet with their Hawking wireless bridge modem and a Linksys broadband router. During bootup the monitor displays Flow Control: Transmit:Disabled, Receive:Disabled directly following the line Link Configuration: Auto Negotiation Enabled.

Can someone explain to me what Flow Control is AND what do I need to do to enable same?

Flow control is what commincations devices use to talk back and forth (simplified version).
So basically, if your computer wants to talk to the wireless network, the computer could tell the network that it is free to accept data... and the network can tell the computer when it is free to accept data.
There are other carrier signals they can set as well, ie: busy, clear to send, clear to transmit etc...

The general rule of thumb is: if it is working, then dont change it.

General flow (for serial (RS232 etc) are Xon/Xoff, Software or Hardware. I'm not sure what protocols they use in wireless tho...

Hope that helps...
