I've used the solectek quite a bit and actually had a 10mb to my
house for a week or so. Sure beats ISDN. I wasn't that impressed
with the throughput of the 10mb, though. We have a fairly mimimal
configuration (less than two miles to my house, less than 1/2 mile
to another site) and the most I ever saw on a wsttcp test about about
300k/sec. We've pushed the 2mb boxes to over 185k/sec easily.

We are using the AB200 (2mb version of #2), AB203 (2mb 900mzh) and AB1000
(#3) without a problem.
