I've see very negative reports about Sportsters in India. I'm told
they're the #1 modem in the US. In India, a lot of ZyXEL sales come from
people who have tried saving money by buying a Dataport or a Sportster
as their first modem. :)
Sportsters are definitely not to be used for serious use. Individual
home users who can afford to waste time can use them. The point is that
they are poor in handling noisy lines or other deviations from narrow
limits of parameters.
