WHAT ABOUT THE AIRCARD?

BY REX
Custom Smiley WHAT ABOUT THAT AIRCARD PROJECT?

THE PLAN WAS TO CONNECT TO THE INTERNET WITH A SPRINT AIRCARD. WE PLANNED TO USE A WIRELESS ROUTER SO THAT WE COULD BOTH BE ON THE INTERNET AT THE SAME TIME FROM OUR LAPTOPS.

THE PROJECT DIDN'T GO SO WELL. WE ARE ON THE VERY FRINGES OF THE SPRINT CELL TOWER SERVICE. THE AIRCARD DOESN'T WORK AT ALL IN REX'S GATEWAY COMPUTER. THE SIGNAL ISN'T STRONG ENOUGH TO MAKE THE ROUTER WORK.

MARY'S SONY VIAO LAPTOP DOES CONNECT TO THE INTERNET THROUGH THE AIRCARD, WITH AN EXTERNAL ANTENNA AND AMPLIFIER.

WE RETURNED THE ROUTER. WE KNOW THAT WHEN WE MOVE THE CAMPER BACK DOWN THE MOUNTAIN TO CARSON CITY, THE SPRINT SIGNAL WILL BE MUCH BETTER.

THE QUESTIONS THAT REMAIN ARE, WILL IT WORK IN LAUGHLIN? WILL THE SIGNAL BE STRONG ENOUGH IN LAUGHLIN TO RE-PURCHASE THE ROUTER? IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE GATEWAY EXPRESS CARD SLOT?

HERE IS A PICTURE OF THE MOUNTED EXTERNAL CELL PHONE ANTENNA.
