[nos-bbs] soundmodem versus hardware TNC for JNOS

Fellow JNOSers,
     I've had a heck of a bout recently with a bad TNC.  The TNC I bought
can't seem to keep up under a heavy load and it drops chunks of data when it
has lots to transmit.  I've configured it outside of JNOS and it does the
same thing so I've given up on it.

I've gone back to a Signalink USB with the soundmodem driver, and it works
fine.  I was thinking I'd have to come up with a new TNC since the old one
isn't going to work.  But the more I think about it, I might as well just
keep using the soundmodem TNC since it works.

Has anyone on the list run JNOS with a sound card modem for long periods of
time and/or with heavy use?  Is it as reliable as a hardware TNC?

Thanks everyone for your help!

Have old memories and young hopes.
