Symbol synchronization with unknown symbol rate

I'm learning about the early late gate symbol synchronization and understand that it needs to be given the symbol rate ahead of time. How could a multi-symbol rate system use an early late gate? It is ...

Isn't Gardner's algorithm and Early-Late gate the same thing?

I'm reading about some symbol synchronization methods and I find these two (ELG and Gardner) very similar. Early-Late gate takes 2 samples, one at $t=T-\delta$ and the other at $t=T+\delta$, then ...

How to measure/estimate symbol rate of a signal with unknown ( but probably QAM ) modulation?

Is it possible to estimate the symbol rate of a signal whose modulation is not know exactly but it can only be guessed that it is probably some kind of QAM (probably 64 or 256). What is the best way ...
