I have a USB card from verizon, and it's been flawless. Recently I picked up a gateway LT2016U netbook used. Its the model Verizon uses for their netbook opition for their data plan. The guy I bought it from didn't use it with his data plan anymore. He added RAM (now has 2GB), and Windows Vista with a valid key code. I've tried to download the drivers for the wireless card, and the 3G wireless thingy for the mobilebroad. Both wouldn't install with vista. I can get my USB card to work in the computer and access the internet that way. It would be nice to just be able to use this laptop as my internet access of possible. If not I'll just use my USB card.
