Thread: Mobile Internet Access
12-22-2003, 11:00 AM #1m4cw4re_syst3mGuestMobile Internet Access
Just wondering about internet access on the move really...
I've recently bought an ibook, I notice there is no infrared port on it though, How do you people browse the net on your laptop while you are on the move then? I assume this is possible as its one of the things thats so nice about laptops.
Yes it has an airport card but thats no good on the train or in the park as there is no network to join,
With my old pc laptop it used the infrared on my phone to allow me to surf the net, what is the ibook/mac equivalent of this? how do you surf the net while your travelling? My phone has a browser/email/ssh/telnet/vnc so i'm not totally stuck without this functionality but it certainly would be nice to have it.

Thanks a lot for the link
I've emailed the people who wrote PdaNet (treo software to link to pc as usb modem) and they do have plans to create a Mac port so hopefully before too long i will be able to use my existing phone
