Tired of visiting coffee shops and paying extra to use their Wi-Fi connection? Boss says no to paying extra for High Speed Internet at hotels? I've just read two very fascinating how-to articles that will help solve these issues and get you surfing, downloading and whatever else you do with a High Speed Internet connection on the go.
The first article, Wi-Fi to Go: The Hot Spot in a Box, is by David Pogue of the New York Times and he reviews the various portable Wi-Fi routers available from several manufacturers. He goes into nice detail about the features, cost and which cellular carriers each model is compatible with.
The second article, EVDO Stompbox Project, by Tor Armundson, is a true DIY project. Once completed, you will have a sweet, low cost, portable Wi-Fi connection for your car, briefcase, hotel room or wherever you wish to use it. This project is specifically for the Verizon EVDO BroadbandAccess service.
