Are You Using DSL, Wifi or Combination?

I had DSL then went 100 percent Wifi, two years doing it that way. Got a sprint Mifi 3G unlimited data that supports up to 5 devices. My problem is viewing some videos online. For now no land line or DSL. I can work from anywhere, no need for hot spots that might cost and have security issues. As a backup my smart phone can also be a hot spot . I have a solar back up and an inverter for the car.

  • I have it through the cable company. We have a wireless network so that we can use all 50,000 computers we have in the house. lol I've never tried to use wifi or really any internet away from home. I'm too hesitant about the security issues, like you mention.

  • Lobelia,

    Who is the carrier? AT&T or Verizon? I use Sprint. I cant use Netflix because it buffers too much, other than that on Hulu I'm Fine
