Default Wirelessly connected to the internet!

W00T. I'm using dialup and now I'm wirelessly connected to the internet with WiFlyer! I ordered it from J&R on Saturday and it was shipping Monday and flew into the airport here and arrived today (Wednesday). It was pretty easy to configure - I just opened IE and it connected to the router's configuration page and I typed in the dialup details and it connected.

Yeah, I get about 50kbps download on this connection. I love having the convenience of wireless... even if the speed isn't that great, it feels like I'm on high speed.

Yeah, and I don't want the price or ping that comes with satellite (and if it's as reliable as my satellite TV, I'm better off with NO internet) so I'm stuck with dialup.

Wow. you can actually download @ 50KB/s there? In the UK, with dialup, you download at about 3.6KB/s _

50kbps is kiloBITS per second. It only downloads at between 3 and 5kiloBYTES per second. Anyway, I packed up the router and I'm going to sell it on eBay - when I brought it home it only downloaded at about 0.5kb/s and it was unbearable and unreliable. Others had the same problem apparently.
