Along with my cell phone, I took the SP3 out of the country last week. I tried to connect both my cell phone and the SP3 to a variety of routers along the way. Scorecard: cell phone: 100% SP3: 0% That is, I was able to connect my cell phone to every public router (and some home ones) that I tried and was unable to connect (well, stay connected is a better way to put it) to any of them on the Sp3. Overall I love my SP3 and I use it daily for work and pleasure, but man was I disappointed when traveling with it. Except for being able to use it as a really nice Kindle reader, it was a waste to haul it around with me. C'mon MS, how is it possible that this high tech device is easily one of the worst devices in my person history when it comes to working with routers????
