Reply to: How Can I get Online While Traveling?
If you download Network Stumbler and have your laptop on and open with Stumbler running you will get audible alerts as wireless networks come within range. A graphic display will tell you if the network is secured or unsecured and how strong the signal strength is.
Otherwise, wherever you park your car on the street in, say Manhattan (NYC), you can click on your wireless adapters configuration manager to look for available wirless networks within range connect to them.
accessing internet when travelling
we access the internet using our 3585i Nokia cellphone via usb data cable. We travel about 6 mo. a year and it works great in our motorhome. It is SLOW but beats going to a library or internet cafe.
Rent a broadband card...
Well, my thought is that you can rent a mobile broadband card for the time that you will need to access the internet away from your home. I found a website that actually rents out the mobile broadband cards by the week or the month without having you sign up for a 2 year contract. It is really neat for people who have internet at home and just need it for a business trip or vacation but don't want to carry the cost when you get back home.

I use a Sprint PCS connection through my cell phone. You can purchase a USB from them to connect your phone to your laptop.

Wireless internet while traveling
I know of one company that will actually rent out mobile broadband cards, WifiRents.com In the past I have rented from them for vacations and I was very pleased with the service. They will rent the mobile broadband cards and/or routers by the week or month without having to sign a 2-year contract. Just a thought, hopefully this helps. Check them out www.WifiRents.com
