Mobile Wifi - Help Please
 
I think this is a simple project but warn me if not. I travel a lot from May to November and I want to add ?? whatever is necessary to have a mobile wifi hotspot in the truck all the time.

I've seen mobile routers but I'm confused about whether I have to have a cellular modem card, tether to my iPhone, etc. etc.

I simply want to be able to travel and at any time log on to the web, email, etc from inside our out of the truck with my iPhone, iPad, laptop or whatever.

So what do I need? What are you using? Cost?

Thanks!

I just need internet access in my Ram or close to it
i don't have any cards, just the unit
When i am in the field, a lot of the time, there is no cell phone coverage
I stay at motels that have Wi-Fi in the rooms, when i do multi day jobs or trips

I just wish that i had the installation instructions, so that i could buy a power supply of the proper voltage & hook it up at my sisters place, she has no internet & i stay there while i am back east

I bought a unit called AUTONET, it is good within about 100 feet of the Ram
So far i have not been any place that i didn't have internet access, so i get Trucking Permits anywhere. I also have a mobile printer
several other people with laptops can also use my AUTONET, if i give them the password

The cost may be prohibitive to many people.

I just checked out the site & it looks like they now have other options, some better then what i now have

This sounds a lot like what I can get through Verizon wireless... the costs/ data limits are very similar

To the OP, you might want to contact your cell phone provider, perhaps you can add a wireless gizmo to your laptop for less cost

good luck

A jailbroke phone with unlimited data works pretty well ;D
