The new portable internet modem which I talked about yesterday seems to be running faster today. I've found a location in my office which makes 4 of the LED's come on, which, as I still think, means a stronger wireless signal. There may also be a more complete routing table for me in the system, and, of course, cashing of visited pages also contributes.
All in all, things seem to be working pretty well. More impressions about this when I've had more use of the new system.
