Wireless Cellular Internet revisited

Well my brief foray into wireless cellular Internet was just that, "BRIEF". It seemed to be working well until Tuesday evening when the Starcom modem went "TU" and would not access the cell network. No signal strength. Nothing! Nada! Not on Teddy's laptop nor mine. So taking advantage of their fifteen day full refund warranty, we took it back. They offered a replacement but I decided to put my "early adopter" bone on hold and wait until next summer for the next generation models. Sooooo...Teddy and I are back on dial-up for the balance of this summer. When in Arizona we have a cable modem so no problem there. Oh well, in the words of Monty Python, "nobody expected the Spanish Inquisition".
