This is going to be incredibly backwards sounding but... My work laptop is dial up only and I have to bring it home to upload and download info for the next day. However I do not have a Phone line. My home pc is wireless. Is there anyway I can make the laptop "dial up" to my pc and then send the info via my wifi connection?

Thanks in advance,

If the laptop has a usb port or open card slot you can add wireless. You could also ask your employer to upgrade.
