I would like to ask you guys to give me your opinion here... I had recently bought a Compaq laptop, and it says that I need to get an internet provider. Now, I could go either way... dial-up or wireless. My mom thinks I ought to go with dial-up, because it's cheaper, but since it's my computer (that I actually bought with my own money) I want wireless. My only problem with having wireless internet is getting a signal. I live in an area that it's rather hard to get a good signal, especially when you're trying to use a cell phone. My township was supposedly going to work on getting wireless service in the area, but nothing more has been said about it. It could be five years before that'll ever happen. So... anyone care to tell me which would be better? If you got some good information, please share it. I could really use some help before I make a bad move on my part.
