The long and wireless road.

If you're looking for fast Internet connection without the hassle of dial-up, consider the Sierra AirCard 400 wireless modem from Ricochet. This superthin, 128Kbps modem is about three times faster than dial-up and consistently delivers lightning-quick connections from 14 major metropolitan areas and airports nationwide (with more expected later this year). The AirCard even connected in areas we didn't expect it to (namely, a not-so-tech-capable neighborhood just outside of New York City). The AirCard works with Windows 98, NT, 2000, and PocketPC operating systems--sorry, Mac users. (As tested) Sierra AirCard 400, $299 (Wireless Web Connect, 800-811-RICO; www.wwc.com).
