I emailed them to see if it was mac-compatible..and here is the reply I got from their Customer Service:<br>No.<br><br>Hmmm...I wonder if it would be but they just don't know?<br><br><br>My stuff for sale.
I just emailed the guy back...<br>Why not? I was all set to get this....what prohibits it from working with macintosh's?<br>Right now I'm wireless with Insightbb using a Linksys router. If it's because you aren't sure, I would love to test it out for you all.<br><br><br><br>My stuff for sale.
Ask them if it is Unix compatible and see what the response is!<br>Seems no is the first answer to anything that has Mac in the sentence when you talk to tech support. Our national communications carrier claimed for years not to support Mac but strangley in every TV commercial promoting their product was someone sitting in front of a PowerBook or iMac. The reason? They look better on TV.<br><br>Need a laugh? Visit CreatorDude.com
Did they explain why not? When I first got DSL, thrree or more years ago, I was told that the service wasn't Mac compatible. When I asked why, they said they didn't know. I got it. It worked.<br><br> Alas, poor Yorick. -- Hamlet

I had the same dance with Hell Atlantic's DSL about 4 years ago. The installer was clueless, but once he was out of the way, set up and connection worked — even though the service itself soon became a nightmare.<br><br>
Actually, some of these boneheads don't really differentiate "compatibility" with "support". For instance, RoadRunner doesn't officially "support" Mac, but it certainly is compatible. You should ask them to clarify that.<br><br>
Nope..his reply was this:<br><br>From: "Brian R"<br>Date: Sun Aug 10, 2003 9:33:22 AM US/Eastern<br>To: John R<br>Subject: Re: Wireless broadband<br><br>No<br>John R writes: <br>Hi,<br>I read an article in the Courier-Journal last week about how you all are coming out with wireless broadband for homeusers.
