I wish. In a few areas of the country Metricom/Ricochet provides
wireless access, but their modem ISN'T a PCMCIA card last I heard; it's
an external box. Someone from the Stanford NUG sent me email recently
from one.

Try,, or search Info-Newt for
"Stanford", fine the NUG meeting announcement a few weeks back and email
the person who sent it to them to ask more...but it's only available in a
couple of large cities (San Francisco Bay Area and I think maybe parts of
Washington DC, Seattle or NY, I don't remember exactly...although I think
they may have just or are going to be soon rolling it out to a few more
BIG cities soon)
