    Yay! Ok, I feel so much better now. This may end up being much easier than i anticipated. When we had to live in the hotel for a month after our fire a friend loaned us a laptop. Well, we never could get the thing to work. Would have been great if we could have but we just couldn't & the help we got was minimal & of no use. So that has been my one & only experience with a laptop & with a laptop in a hotel. So I was feeling a bit anxious.

    Looks like it's going to be A-Ok! Thanks Sarah, Keith & Tink for letting me know

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    Tink, how does the air card work? Do you need a separate ISP?

    I see them in stores, but haven't had the time to stop and read the information. Not that I shop that much, anyway!

    Thanks!

    spot on!

    They work great if a little slow and the cell provider is the ISP. Some come with dedicated software to get them to work but basically they're easy enough and as long as you have cell phone coverage, you'll have internet

    Yep. What they said. I have a Verizon one and seem to have less problems with it than my colleagues who us Sprint.

    They can be a bit slow, but it's really not too bad. I've learned that if I have my VPN to my corporate office open, that will slow down my 'net access. It's easy enough to disconnect the VPN when I'm using the 'net and then reconnect when I want to access something via the VPN.

    I have no idea how much they are though. I think somewhere around $60 per month to start, but I truly have no idea.

    So do those cards that work off your cell burn cell minutes? Because if not, that's a great idea & i may have to consider it.
