    Emergency internet connection kit.

    Thought you guys might enjoy this. I've got it stashed in my car now.. just in case!

    It's a Konexx coupler and a v90 modem. For those times you just HAVE to use the net! (Read.. no APs available!)

    Where can I get one of those phone things from? I want to hack an old mobile phone to plug it into a standard modem in the car... so I can dial another mobile at home and access the computer and files and stuff... cos (dial up networking) In Australia, after 9pm you can dial with an Optus prepaid mobile to another optus prepaid and talk for the first 20minutes for free... or.. I could put the base station on a computer that has a perminent internet connection through a network... then get free unlimited 20minute blocks of internet time, from also anywhere is australia.. lol

    Whilst the older analogue mobile phones would allow you to do this, the new digital ones wont as it encoded / compresses the voice signals digitally. A data interface encodes it's signals differently.
    At least that's how it is in the UK with both digital systems.

    He He, you should have seen all the spare parts I carried in the Plemon van (thats short for plymouth lemon) while I was a tech/consultant. I could have built a couple servers/networks/printers.

    I've had ideas in my head to use my cell phone to connect to the internet. My phone is a Motorola SC-3160, it doesn't work as a modem. So my best bet is the 2.5mm headphone/mic jack.

    A lot of the payphones over here are being converted for ISDN internet service (I believe that some even get ADSL!) so just dont come this side of the pond.

    how about usb 802.11b adapter, if its in the car, just go to any downtown area and youre sure to pick up some singals.
    and since its USB, just unplug it when not needed.
    just my 2 cents

    PS AP means Access Point. IE 802.11b (or g) access point.

    I'm wired for 802.11b here. This is the "Emergency Kit"
    Sorry, but you should READ the post.
