Verizon wireless broadband and wifi phone
I am looking into the possibility of using the following combination in my carpc, wanted to share with everyone and ask a question.
Currently have the Verizon PC5740 PCMCIA broadband modem with unlimited access plan.
Stumbled upon this: http://vonage.com/device.php?type=F1000
VonageŽ WiFi Phone
The UTStarcom F1000 WiFi Phone is a pocket-sized, wireless Internet phone that uses Vonage service by connecting to wireless Internet access points worldwide, also known as WiFi hotspots. It's an easy way to bring your Vonage service anywhere.
Im thinking it would be a pretty cool set up since I have the unlimited access plan thru verizon wireless already, vonage will have caller id ect thru the desktop software, and by using the wi-fi vonage phone, i would virtually have unlimited calling anytime I am in my car (just like cellular) and would also be able to use it at the airport, home, and other wi-fi spots.
Now I have a stupid question?
The only networks I have set up are where you plug the hub into the ethernet cord from your cable modem. Since there is no hard line (ethernet cord) how do you hook up the wi-fi broadcaster or wireless hub?
I am running a laptop with the pcmcia verizon card as the modem, Is there a simple usb adapter that will plug in to my laptop and broadcast the wi-fi signal? or are the usb adapters only wi-fi receivers?? SOrry if this is a dumb question. Looking to see if it is possible to broadcast a wi-fi signal from the verizon broadband service in my vehicle, and if it is, what would be the cheapest and smallest option?
thanks in advance.
