Yes, that has been around for awhile and it is getting better as the fastest
you could connect is 9600bps which is slow. New technology is breaking in
this area as we converse.

One thing to remember is that most laptops will be a little slower then a
workstation, not that noticeable unless you are a power user, the info you
provided is good, however, not knowing your setup, you would need a modem
and a NIC and most now have them built in. USB 2.0 is getting ready to come
out in notebooks also. USB 1.1 is 77MBPS and 2.0 is 480MBPS, you can
purchase a pcmcia usb2.0 card to give you this ability if your motherboard
doesn't support 2.0. A lot of the manufacturer's are not providing software
with their machines now of which winbook is one. I don't like this, however,
HP, Compaq and a lot of the others are doing it. Good Luck, Dave

to have a good tech page, http://www.winbookcorp.com/

Hey Bill,
