I have never had any problem when browsing on the phone itself.  But whenever
I try to  use it as an internet connection for my notebook (usb from notebook
to freerunner, with all the appropriate SNAT and routing tables set up) it
works for a few hundred K and then just seizes up.  I wonder if it is some
sort of flow-control issues over the serial link to the GSM device, but that
is all supposed to be hardware flow-control and certainly seems to be set up
