does anybody have any thoughts on getting wireless internet on the go on a car-puter. What is available out there? Whats the best/fastest solution to getting internet while on the go, (not just parked in your garage or driving slowly near a unsecure wireless network). Thanks for your help!

My car PC: The Lost Cause!
I can connect via my Motorola v60 .... there is a usb cable you can buy for it ... your cpu will see it as a modem but speeds are slow 14 - 28 kbps
i have T-mobile and they offer a mobile GPRS internet add on @ $20 month i was thinking of checking out : speeds up to 128 kbps they also have a new HotSpot gig goin on T1 speeds wireless at certain locations.
"T-Mobile HotSpot service uses standards based "Wi-Fi" (802.11b) technology and is easily accessible for Starbucks customers with a wireless-ready notebook computer or Pocket PC. Backed by T-1 connections in popular venues in the U.S., T-Mobile HotSpot service is reliable and fast enough to accommodate the full spectrum of applications from checking e-mail to multi-media video conferencing with a high-speed wireless connection as much as 40 - 50 times faster than standard dial-up Internet access.
Has anyone tried these services?
Currently, cell phone is your best solution. Forget about the hot spot or starbucks. Sure those are broadband connection but are you gonna park there? Are you gonna be "damn I need to get on the internet. Where the hell is Starbucks at?" I think not. For truely on the go (I-15 on the way to Las Vegas) Try sprint Vision or T-mobile. Sprint will get you closer to the 144kbps speed than any other services that claims 144bkps.

got Orinoco Card and Orinoco access point with 8db Omni antenna in the House connecting to an open wireless networking is not Illegal Hacking to a secured wireless is Illegal. Check your location for free Wireless at http://www.nycwireless.net/
just cause its open doesn't make it illegal. yes nyc wiresless is legal but lots of people leave their AP "open" with no wep installed and a lot of companies also and getting on that network is illegal. There is a differnce between open and public wireless i'd say
