First you need to update the driver. You can download it from : http://www.novatelwireless.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=163&Itemid=330

Here find your device and you OS.

The installation was not that easy on mac OS 10.4.x but flawless on mac OS 10.5.x

The device works fine. Though the wwan on mac doesn't work and then you have your signal strengh neither the kind of network your are connected to. You still have a colored LED on the device that let you know if you are on EDGE or 3G. But that is not enough.

It's a big lack regarding the size of Rogers, Mac, Novatel company not to support completely the device.

By the way do not expect Rogers to help you out with any installation problem on Mac. They just do not know.

That's it.

Northern Ontario Usage

High speed internet was not available to my home through the wired phone system and dial-up ties up my phone line.
Satelite service is quite expensive.

The Roger rocketstick works ok but not as fast as they say it is to be up here in Northeastern Ontario I only get speeds of 129 kilobits per second as compared to speeds of up to 7.2 Megabits per second this is a huge difference.

Because it is charged by the amount of download/upload volumes, I don't have the same advantage of downloading movies or viewing tv shows like they do unless I really want to pay almost twice as much as they do. So there is a cost per use issue.

I also found that in some towns where my cell phone signal is very strong, the speeds I get with the stick are slower than dial-up, 32 kb/s. and I had to be close to a window with the stick pointing in the direction of the tower.

Other wise, the advantages are that the phone line is not longer tied up, I can access the internet almost anywhere, I am not tied to my house for internet service and it is cheaper that satellite internet. No intallation fee, technicians did not have to visit my home because it is plug and play. It is also cheaper than the similar servive that the other cell phone company is offering.

This Internet stick works just fine, it really is "plug and play".

The service providers website said that there is no service in my area, but i was told by a friend to try anyways, because for some reason unknown to man kind, sometimes the website will tell you you wont get service in your area but you might.

I don't recommended you go out an buy an internet stick without knowing if it will really work, but if you know somebody that owns an internet stick, borrow it and try it in your area. if you live in a metropolitan area chances are it will work just about anywhere.
