When it connects (in windows), it pops a message saying "Internet is now
connected at 230 kbps" ;) big claims!! i usually can download the stuff at
15 kbps, which also i think is decent for a wireless connection.

On a related topic, I was wondering whether USB Modem option that Reliance

I dont have a much idea about USB, but they seems to be a better choice
atleast due to two reasons.
a) Its cheaper then PCMCIA.
b) Many hardware vendor gonna discontinue to provide pcmcia card slot in
future.

Only disadvantage with usb is it is external, while pcmcia fits snugly in
laptops.

If you are planning to buy, avoid reliance. My personal opinion. People at
customer care there have trouble in even pronouncing "linux". If even then
you are buying avoid ZTE in all cases. Go for huwaei.

Cheers,
