Visiting a big city for a few months...place doesnt have cable/internet set up and not worth the hassle for a few months.

I've been sneaking onto nearby wireless networks (read previous post) but am not sure how safe that is. Now i'm finding I cant log-on them all the time, and it's becoming pretty annoying.

Also my outlook 'send mail" feature isnt working (everythings stuck in my outbox). Even W.W. wouldnt let me log-on to their servers today!

I've heard about those cards you can get from phone companies so you can get wireless internet ANYWHERE.

sounds great! but i'm sure it's slow as heck. anyone with experience with this stuff? any recommendations? what's a good price to pay?

i'm surprised this forum is not getting daily activity...

thanks everyone and anyone for their help...

The Verizon card is broadband wireless. It isn't available in every city, but you can get a map from them showing where they have coverage. In areas that don't offer broadband, you can usually still get on at higher dialup speeds.

I tried it out in a hotel off of the beach in FLL and I was impressed but not impressed. Its not that fast but still better than any of the other phone companies until a better technology comes out. It only seemed to disconnect a few times a day which is not too bad.
