  • Internet anywhere help?

    Looking for a way to get internet anywhere on my mac in my car, such as driving down the highway, and not from just places like mcdonalds or some hotel free wifi points.

    Here are a couple of discussions about it:
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/macc...ccess-mac.html
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/macc...ernet-mac.html

    You didn't mention whether price was important or not or whether you already have a cell phone with a data plan.

      I recommend Millenicom - $49 a month / Franklin USB card works great with my macbook pro / no contract / they basically resell Sprint's EVDO Rev A network. Currently on the highway right now (of course, I am not driving)

        They haven't had modems for almost 2 months now.

        According to their recent correspondence with me , they are waiting for a new "device" that they designed themselves and then they will offer the service again for $49.99 a month.

        Among the modifications we are making with our
        service will be a new device (pending FCC approval).

        When we return to taking orders the cost will be $49.99, unlimited, no
        contract and our service will cover the Western Hemisphere, possibly
        global. It will be necessary to purchase the device and we haven't
        arrived at the cost yet (between $49.99 and $99.99).

          That's a great deal - $49 a month with no contract! I've been on a Sprint EVDO contract for almost two years, but am paying $59 a month. Works great with a Kyocera KR-1 router and a PC Card.

          When the contract is up I'll probably get a USB device and a new plan. I've seen one or two ebay sellers who also offer the Sprint service for $49 a month.

            Watch out for Evdoforums.com. They censor posts because they only sell Sprint and Verizon. If you comment about Millenicom (which evdoforums parent company, 3GStore.com, doesn't sell) they will immediately delete your post. If you post something negative about 3GStore, they will delete it.

            That being said, that's too bad they are out of modems. I got mine about 3 months ago, it's the CDU-680 Franklin with integrated GPS.

                If you also have an iPhone, check out iTunes' App Store and look for "NetShare". It lets you share your cellular connection with your Mac. I wouldn't use it heavily, though, as you may alert the Death Star (AT&T) of a possible TOS violation.

                I have purchased NetShare, but I have NOT tried it out yet. I've read configuring it can be an "interesting" experience, but most people seem to get it working. YMMV. It looks like incorporating the iPhone into my install might pay off better than expected.

                      if you have a jail-broken iphone you can do this for free. Tested and it does work.

                      those directions may also help with the setup of the NetShare app

                        And they pulled it again.

                        Will probably only allow it outside the US where carriers allow tethering.

                        Grumble, grumble...

                          I really can't believe Apple approved it in the first place. What were they thinking offering NetShare? It's on, it's off, it's on again, it's off again. Can't they make up their minds? I'm glad I bought it while it was still available. I must have been one of the last to buy it. I'll be sad when iPhone v2.0.1 disables it or they work some iTunes magic to remove it from my iPhone without my permission. Wouldn't THAT create a public uproar?

                          I messed around with it a little earlier today, but I couldn't get it to work.

                          Offer AT&T a monthly $30 bribe and they may let you tether.

                          I just checked UK & Japan iTunes Stores can't find it.

                          Thanks for the link! This was just a nice app for those trying to "play by the rules" Apple & AT&T's rules!

                            both methods of tethering are exactly the same. route network traffic through a proxy server. If one violates the ATT terms of service they both do. As for jail breaking I don't see anything morally wrong with it, and as far as I know it is perfectly legal.

                              I'd agree. I don't see how one would and the other wouldn't unless for some crazy reason, it's OK because, in a sense, one has Apple's blessing, the other doesn't but even Apple doesn't appear to know what they're doing.

                              YOU see nothing wrong with jailbreaking. I see nothing wrong with jailbreaking. Apple & AT&T probably disagree. My thoughts? I bought I can throw it off a bridge if I want to . It's MINE! When they start GIVING iPhones away, they can start telling me what I can do with it. However, none of this prevents them from "accidentally" bricking the iPhone on the next update.
