Hi all,

I have a problem... I have T-mobile wireless interent in which I use a PC card. I would like to know if it's possible to link this connection through a router without using usb, ethernet, ect - no wires. So that my other computer and printer can share in the network and none of them be tethered together.
My 2nd question, if anyone can help, is how well does broadband phone service work through this type of internet connection?
Thanks for any help or suggestions!

If you are referring to connection the modem to the router wirelessly, I believe the answer is no. I do not see the benefit of doing so. If you are referring to connecting a cellular telphone to a router I would have to say not. What exact connection are you trying to connect to the router?
What you can do is connect a ADSL, Cable, ISDN, T-1, Frame Relay, to a wireless router and have a wireless connection to the computers, NAS, print server over a wireless LAN.

My 2nd question, if anyone can help, is how well does broadband phone service work through this type of internet connection?

When you say thru the teleco service, I assume you mean ADSL over telphone wire? If that is offered to you, and you can afford it, jump at the chance. You will not believe how much more fun you will have over dialup. I prefer Cable because I had it before ADSL was available ('97). But you will not be disappointed with ADSL. If you only have one computer and are on a budget, ask your ISP if they offer DSL Lite (256kb/128kb). It is usually around $30 vs $45 to $65 for higher bandwigth DSL (2.5mb\256kb).

Is your wireless connection accomplished on a cellular phone type service?
T Mobile is a cellular provider here where I live. They also provide "hotspots" in places like coffee shops and bookstores.

Do you have something similar to what is described here?

Voip phones work well with broadband connections.
I have Vonage and like it really well, but I also have a 10mbps cable broadband connection.

Enthusiast is right about VoIP. It is reliable (reliable as your HSI connection) and a good value for the money. It works on the low end HSI also very well. My mother has Cox Broadband 256kb/256kb and VoIP and the telephone works great. It should work equally as well with your DSL or even your wireless hotspot, if that s what you have.
