A good internet connection is often difficult to find in a remote area. Your cell phone company might have a solution for you.

I want to use my Acer wireless netbook when I visit a remote area. I'm able to get dial-up using external modem, but it's very slow; it shuts down often and makes it almost impossible for me to read any attachments. It's so slow that I can only read a few emails in an hour, so my emails just keep coming and I give up. I noticed that some of the neighbors have wireless hookups. What do I need to have to get a wireless connection?

In this excerpt from Answercast #34. I look at wireless internet in remote areas and a way to get started in finding a provider.

In general, what you need is a connection to your home from a phone company or your cable company that gets you high-speed internet; typically DSL or cable speeds, and then attach a wireless router to that connection.

At that point, you establish your own wireless hotspot and you can use your wireless computer to connect to that wireless hotspot.

Now, in a lot of cases, the questions I get have to do with people in a situation where DSL or cable is not an option. They somehow think that the internet is simply available in the air somewhere.

Typically, it's not. It is not something where you can just run the right software or signup to the right service to have it show up.

There are definitely services that might work, but typically, they are not available in remote areas.

The thing that I would look for (my suggestion to start) is to talk to your wireless phone provider, your mobile provider. They often support a wireless attachment for your PC or your laptop that will connect to their wireless network.

It's not the same kind of wireless that your PC is already configured to use; it's not Wi-Fi. It's cellular broadband and that requires:

It's possible that those speeds would be more acceptable to you, depending on the coverage for the cell phone provider in your area.

So, that's the direction I would send you off in. You'll need to get support and an adapter from your mobile phone company and sign up for a data plan. But having done so, that should give you wireless internet in your home.
