    We use verizon air cards when cable isn't available.

    You can use the 3g card like suggested or satellite both of these are a little expensive but I would go here first and put in your info and it will tell you who provides internet and other services in your area.

    I have cable. A friend that can't get it uses the air card in a router for their internet service!!

    Our aircards plug directly into any PC or laptop, no router needed. The aircards are generally $50-60 per month but they're about the only reliable method of connecting.

    Ah, the good old days. Dialup access usually runs about $9.99 a month. Both AOL and Earthlink still offer them. I held onto my landline for quite a long time just so that I could get online when my internet was down (which was quite often at the beginning). It comes with AOL's basic paid membership so IF you have AOL, you only need to upgrade your account.

    I have a Verizon MiFi. Runs about $60 a month, pricey, but now that I'm spoiled, I'll never be without it! As many as 5 electronics can connect at one time, so we often have two laptops and my cell phone going at once. The great thing about the Verizon is that we can take it with us. Great for allowing kids (or me) to get on the internet when traveling and free WiFi isn't available (like on the road).

    I have a verion air card, my wife used a sprint air card. Both work great.

    I had a At&t and their high speed converage was aweful.
