I ordered my GCT from Gateway 10 days ago (Ethernet version) and yesterday it
finaly arrived. When I opened the box, for my surprise, it was the HPNA version.
Since then, tried to contact the guys at Gateway twice (two different reps) and
the answer was the same: Gateway doesn't have Ethernet version anymore. I personaly
find it difficult to believe this... Anyway, their default answer now is that they
are out-of-stock on the Ethernet version.
What I really find amazing is how they change the model I ordered WITHOUT my
knowledge - they could at least have dropped me a short email: "don't have anymore,
want the HPNA?" - or called and left a message for me - anything... But they changed
my order and just shipped to me the wrong version. That's what means to care for the
customer, eh? Anyway, now I will try to contact them to see if they can - at least -
change the internal miniPCI card for me and put a Ethernet instead of the HPNA. If
not, I will think seriously about returning the unit and buying a new one at eBay...
