I had my home connection through Time Warner Cable. The cheaper AT&T DSL is not in my neighborhood.
I currently have a PCMCIA air card for unlimted wireless broadband through Sprint that I use while on the go. On top of that, I'm paying for two cellphones for unlimted access into the internet.
So $65 for Comcast, $60 for Sprint, and $40 for AT&T Wireless. At this point I'm saying FUCK $165 a month just for internet access!!
I don't download videos or watch alot of streaming vids. My air card covers just about all of my needs in a home/mobile setting. So I've disconnected Time Warner.
I plan on getting an adapter for my Sprint air card to connect to my desktop when I'm at home. I've found some PCI card adapters like this.
Before I head out, does anyone have any words of experience or suggestions on any of these? I would honestly prefer an adapter that connects via USB to make it easy to reach. My desktop sits down and away. I can't seem to find any of the USB style adapters online for the local stores.
Well it looks like the only place right now that carries the Linksys router is Compusa. Both Frisco and Plano are out of stock. None of the other tech-based stores carry that specific Linksys router.
I ended up buying this D-Link router that is worthless. The firmware needs to be updated for it to work with my PX-500 air card. The fucking thing will NOT update and stays stuck on the 1.01 version!
Unless I can find somewhere locally, I'm going to have to order this online and wait for it. It's hard for me to fathom that there isn't any place locally from Dallas to Fort Worth that has this router in stock!! Anyone have suggestions on where else besides the bigger stores to look? Mom and pop computer stores somewhere have got to have it!
<-- impatient and doesn't like waiting on online orders.
