It looks as though this adds convenience in the way of using one
connection manager for two protocols. The article almost makes it sound as
though the Merlin card will act as a wifi card also which we know is
impossible. At the download site it adds the disclaimer that you must have
an 802.11b device to use that part of the connection manager. Sadly, you
pretty much are limited to coffee shops to use wifi. Having wifi as a
feasible option in the us is like watching paint dry. Sigh..........
