    To get exactly what I have I would have to pull the invoice but I can tell you it works very well and I have had very little issues. No more than sitting in the office. If it goes down it is for a second or two before it resets itself.

  3. If I am driving, I take my laptop and zip into any good old Holiday Inn, etc and park outside. Turn on my laptop and fire up my program to check on postion trades, etc. I do not attempt to trade between hotels though.:D

    Well, maybe once or twice.

    Many times I trade from airports, airport clubs, restaurants, wherever there is a broadband connection. Most cities have hotspots anymore, $9.95 a day usually.

    If you are in a rural area, wireless broadband can be a big issue coverage wise, but you can usually find a hotel or other spot with public access. I don't have a Treo or other PDA, just use my laptop with on board card.

    Good luck
