What do I need to take advantage of wireless Internet access?

Wireless Internet Access Hardware

If you want to have mobile Internet access by taking advantage of the public wireless Internet connections available in different places, you'll need some special hardware. Of course to be truly mobile you'll need a laptop, notebook, or PDA, but the key thing is the wireless card. Most public access points currently use a standard called 802.11b, although a few use 802.11g. The 802.11g standard is faster than 802.11b, but backwards compatible. That means that if you have an 802.11g card, you'll be able to utilize both 802.11b and 802.11g wireless Internet connections.
