If you have a cell phone you may be able to set up a "hot spot" (@John Morris ). That will use your cell phone data plan. If you have an unlimited data plan you'll be in the cat bird's seat.

 

The only "free" option that I'm aware of is taking the laptop to someplace that offers free wifi. Fast food places, the local mall, coffee shops, some public areas like the library. You can connect to the Internet there but be warned, hackers love to hang out there and try to steal your personal information.

 

Verizon and Xfinity do have hot spots in most cities but they are very short range- a few hundred feet at most.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
