One of my Uncles just purchased a system in his hometown, he live in the middle of nowhere Arkansas, and the only modem choice he has is the Thunderlink 56k. What can you tell me about this modem? Is it a piece of crap or what? I told him I would buy one here for him and send it to him but he's in a hurry to get the damn thing. Any advice appreciated. I was just going to get him a USR since I've never had a problem with mine but I have a feeling he wont wait and will get stuck with a hunk of dung!
