Funny you should mention that...we hit the same situation in Elk City, OK. However my cell modem worked just fine, and my company provides us with a 800 number for dial in to our server so we had the bases covered. I do know that Earthlink has 800 number service available for and added cost. It is .10 a minute, might be an alternative to hassling with a calling card.

Hawking WiFi locator on sale!

Hi gang,

The Hawking WiFi locator mentioned in this thread is on sale at for $9.99 after rebates. I bought one of these Captain Kirk Communicators a while back for 25 bucks and it works as described. It's a LOT easier to flip open this gadget and push one button to find a wi-fi signal than it is to fire up the old laptop. It won't tell you if the connection is password protected like some of the more expensive devices but, hey, for 10 bucks, it's a great time saver!!

IMHO, wireless access points are very easy to set at least WEP security on and consequently I consider it an invitation by the owner of it to share a bit of their bandwidth if an access point has been left unsecured.

There are step by step instructions included with every AP for securing it and so there is no excuse for not doing it unless you want to allow others to use it. Here is Austin, TX at least 15% of the APs that I find around town are unsecured and this is a technically savvy city so I assume that they have been left open intentionally.

It is also useful to buy a USB WiFi adapter which includes an integral high gain antenna. You can move it around and maximize your signal strength easily.
