Dialup Wireless

by t26l / July 26, 2008 6:13 AM PDT

I have a dialup connection (cable and DSL are not available in my area) and one laptop (nothing else, so I can't use ICS to share the connection). I want to connect to the Internet wirelessly. I've looked at the Nebo Wireless thing, but it uses the same frequency as my cordless phone to transmit, so that won't work. I also looked at the WiFlyer, but I couldn't find it anywhere in stock. What is the best way I can do this (not too too hard though)?

Let's say you won't change or test if your 2.4GHz phone interferes?

If so you'll have to try a Wiflyer but connect that to some 802.11a at 5.8GHz and equip all your machines with 802.11a cards.

This seems pricey to me.

I'm not seeing how the phone and dialup internet would interfere - you couldn't use them at the same time, right?

I can only share to those that doubt that its best they try it and hope for the best.

There are too many reasons for the wiflyer and similar not to work well so why wouldn't we give it the best setup?
