Re: broadband

Everything starts out ok. I bought the priority package so I could gain access when traffic was high. Somewhere between 16 and 60% I get an error that the server has abruptly disconnected me. This just started after the RHN change had been implemented. I don't really know, but suspect that low speed is at fault. The network may have changed the minimum requirements for the benefit of the many.

I had a bad experience trying to get a usb modem to work and am concerned about compatability with this unit. As time goes on and I fall farther behind in my updates I may try it anyway - I just don't want to gamble $100 on this part of the hardware and still be unable to get what I need.

What makes USB a bad choice, out of curiosity? I have USB devices (not network ones) that are quite happy with RH 7.3, it would seem.

Also, why is it that you cannot update your system via modem?

The product said it was designed for windows 95, 98, NT or better so I installed Linux.
