C'mon, yes wireless dial-up is possible but its not a good idea. I wish people would quit trying to keep milking dial-up and move to cable or DSL for crying out loud. The only people who have an excuse to be on dial-up are those who don't have a choice but satellite. Price isn't an issue anymore because most cable and phone companies offer high speed Internet for the price of AOL. Yes, it will be slower (384 or 768Kbps) than the typical broadband packages of 3-5Mbps, but it is worlds better than dial-up. If you CAN get cable or DSL and you choose dial-up, you are an IDIOT!

Hmm....twice the price of AOL for at least 30+ times faster? Doesn't sound like a bad deal to me.

My cable is rated 75x faster than 56K dial-up for $39.99. I think American cable is better than Canadian cable. I always heard in Canada you should get DSL.
