I have Cricket "broadband" which usually runs near the speed of dialup (in a range of 40K to 70K) with occasional bursts to 200K and other times under 1K.

I got a netbook and installed the Cricket device and software. No noticable difference in speed, but now I'm unable to do normal web surfing. Like I can open Gmail but get an Error some features did not load due to internet connectivity issue. Similarly, my list of messages displays but I can't read any of them (mouse over does not make messages clickable).

This is weird. Is there some problem common to or inherent in netbooks that might cause this problem? Not enough power of some sort?

Could it be a timeout, meaning, if a page or graphic or content fails to load in a certain amount of time, the process of loading times out???
