The internet connection with the mobishark is maddeningly slow by todays standards. I have mobishark $49.95, I wasted my money on this device. It takes five minutes for it to load my comcast homepage on my laptop. That is when it is successful. It takes about ten minutes to get the damn thing connected to the web on start up. With a VZW Aircard the homepage will load in about three seconds or less.
I should have listened to the reports I read and put the $49.99 towards a true phone to modem interface, like a 8100 or 8800 series.
BY the way I was looking at a friends 8130 today on alltel and it has broadband speed, and is much faster than my 7100i on nextel/sprint. Does anyone want to comment on that?
