This is what I hate about allowing a computer into the house: maintenance.
The Pank is fine -- the connections are just off. It is hard to imagine that my MOM lives in a town that has citywide free wi-fi, and here in The Big City, a block from the University, you might as well stand outside with tinfoil on your head to try to get signal.
It does what BlackBerry used to do back in the dark ages (the Pearl was practically the death of me) -- spin, spin, spin -- timed out. It'll connect to the basics, but no blogger...no videos...no Porn.
It's practically Amish.
