I'll soon be taking care of my mom with a terminal illness and will need constant internet access. The only cable access is in her bedroom and the computer has to be powered off while she's resting (which is most of the time). The cable provider charges $310 to install another cable line in the house. (There are lots of problems as the house is very old - no crawl space nor an attic.)
Since I'll only be there temporarily (sadly), I can't invest that much money setting up the additional cable or installing roof-top satellite. But I'd be happy to invest it in things I can bring back and put to use at home, such as a wireless laptop, router, etc.
How would you go about getting around these problems? Any suggestions... please??? anybody...???
