Reviewing the Cradlepoint PHS300 dan sawyer Cruising for hotspots on a Linux Laptop can be a royal pain. It's not that we don't have good Wi-Fi sup-port we do it's more that a lot of places offer free Wi-Fi with strings and dongles. My favorite coffee shop for working in, for example, offers free Wi-Fi to customers, and they control access by means of PCMCIA cards with the router set to allow only those MAC addresses. Leaving aside the fact that I have no way to install their Windows-only...
