Right, I have this set up, but I still got somewhat flaky behavior. I
haven't tested it again recently, but I think it might be my modem. I
have one of the internal Sportsters (an older one of the 28.8 flavor),
and I had heard some rumbling about problems with those. I'm going to
get a modem ROM upgrade soon. Maybe that'll fix it.
