    Default Selecting RAS (modem) or NDIS on modem dashboard?

    I have noted on both my Cell C dashboard and on my MTN dashboard that it is possible to connect my E1752 modem either selecting RAS (modem) or NDIS.
    I have tried both and can see that the RAS setting is a dial up connection whereas the NDIS is a LAN or Broadband connection.
    Either one works but my question is: What is the difference between the two as far as performance is concerned...I cannot see any difference and which one are we supposed to use?

    I have read that the NDIS connections were created to overcome a speed limitation of the RAS connections.
    To date I have not been able to measure a difference.
    Cell-C's data support advised me to use the RAS connection.

    I have read of routing problems when using the NDIS connection (unable to access LAN while NDIS connection is established) as well as problems with VPN clients.
