On top of fire performance I want to get an internet connection there, for all you cyber gats out there could someone tell me how this could go about happening. I have seen internet connection at campsites at Moontribe and at StarWars ticket lines...how do they do that???
I know you need a laptop to start

Posted:Do some google searching on "wifi", "wi-fi" and "802.11b"

Basically, you'll need a line with an Internet connection (cable modem, telephone line, or DSL line), and a wireless hub (which probably will cost $150+, unless someone lends you one). And a power source.

Yes, you'll need a wire in there somewhere.

Posted:Yeah Adamrice, Dell is so on this wi-fi ordeal... they're offering the card free when you buy a wireless router.

And yeah, I know, why do they make all the equipment so expensive for us who are the function of their form?
