Sometimes the signal seems to be a little weak, I'd like to see it come with an external antannae (you can buy one, but you know, should you really have to?). And I always feel like I have to baby it, not sure why but it just feels fragile to me. That being said, I've had it in my computer bag and hauled it all over the place and haven't had any problems with it. I've never been able to get the dial up accelerator program to work either. I might use it if I could, but have had no success so far.
It's a great product. If you're on the road and need a great solution for dealing with a variety of Internet connections, or if you want to make your dial up connection wireless, this is for you. Easy to use, simple to hook up and gives you wireless access anywhere you go. Well worth the price.
On the pricy side, but I've been waiting for something like this for ages!
"The following are the only known incompatible ISPs:
This comes from the Always On web site, and could prevent a lot of confusion for customers. Always On has no way of making their product work with these ISPs and will normally not even respond to questions about them.
Never-the-less, it seems like a great product, if you have the right ISP. I had no problems communicating with it as soon as I plugged it in. But after several hours of tweaking, I found out it wouldn't work with my ISP. I wish I knew that before I ordered it!
Honestly, I think the product is just not well made. The concept was excellent, and yours may work for you for a while, just as mine did. But I wouldn't expect this to last for very long if used frequently. Perhaps some sort of minor jostling caused the unit to fail? I'll never know. And I sure won't buy another one.
***** UPDATE *****
I emailed techsupport at [...] about my difficulty with the wireless LED staying off and no wireless signal being broadcast.Read more ›
Just wanted to tell you how nice your WiFlyer is working. Using Apple G4 12" 867 laptop with OS 10.3.6.
Installation took about five minutes and it's been working great.
Thanks for a good product.
