In our experience  [ Good ol' USofA and ATT, Sprint, ] the usb 
stick devices suck for connectivity. The only ones we've had any luck 
with are either the PCMCIA or PCExpress ones. You can buy adapter cards 
to use them in desktop machines, we did. We even have a USB adapter to 
use our PCExpress with our Eeepc's. [ no PCMCIA or PCExpress slots ]

Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans.
