The real issue is that it was rumored that a local company here in town (Port Huron, Michigan) was going to offer wireless internet access via 802.11b for a fee. This would have been great. On this rumor, I built the computer with web cams, and installed chat clients etc. anticipating the release. They have since backed out. So, I am left to "borrow" internet when I want to use such things. I've yet to find any "internet providers" near the river/lake which is my relaxation place and subsiquently the place where I use the computer most. Bigger antenna = Longer range. Maybe the Casino across the river in Sarnia Ontario Canada has WiFi?
