Well I have a data card for my laptop. And not cable/phone internet in the house. So what I am trying to do is get 2 internet active computers in the house. So my thoughts on it was seeing how the laptop has internet from the data card from my cell company with internet that I could some how netword the two and let the network cable allow for internet on both systems.

Make sence?

Thanks
James

LOL Larry.... I love my data card.. they just upgraded to highspeed so it's as fast as cable and I can surf the net while doing 80 down the interstate (not that I do that). But I love the freedom the datacard gives me.

Steve,
Yeah when I got mine I had a choice between the PCI slot or the USB. I picked the PCI.

OH well I'll figure it out. I am going to get that book Larry.. so we get the kickback \:\)

James

LOL Larry... oh Im sure they are... I think my laptop and cell phone are trying to take over the world LOL.

A aircard is a lot like a wireless card, but instead of haveing to be in a wireless "hotspot" to access the net and lots of times haveing to pay for a day's access. You would use a cell signal to get the net. So if you have a cell signal you have the net. It's like takeing your home internet with you everywhere you go. It works really good for someone who travels a lot. I know that my cell compnay just moved to a broadband signal, so it's almost as fast as cable internet. But I really like the freedom mine gives me. Being able to just slid my card into my laptop and hit a cell tower and bang on the net. No matter where I am (so far) if I can hite the cell tower I can get on here and bug the crap out of people LOL
