I'm currently using a 3G USB stick to get mobile internet to my mac. I use different kinds and this is the only way to get internet in some places. So I have to use them.

Most of these supply really crappy drivers and the current one (Quick net) crashes my laptop. Is there a way to sandbox the driver or something like that?

I don't like the drivers because the lag when restarting, plug really deep into the system and are hard to remove.

Sandboxes don't prevent crashes, they primarily prevent applications from accessing too much data and ressources. – patrix Oct 15 '12 at 18:38
sandbox of some kind will protect the OS. I don't care if the driver crashes. – mist Oct 16 '12 at 21:19
