you need a wireless card to put in your mini slot. You will also need a wireless router to connect to that is hooked up into the internet.

They can go pretty far, but it depends on where you are. If its in a ship with lots of metal walls you'll be hosed a bit.

Sounds like what you need is a satellite ISP or something similar, which is a different matter. If you have money to burn, then maybe you could look into that. Just do a google search.

i did a quick look into it..

it seems to me that Satellite internet is basically the route people go when they can't get DSL or Cable in their area.. you gotta setup a dish outside your house and all that.. I havnt seen anything about laptop hardware that receives satellite signals..

are you sure it can be used mobile?

!. I'd imagine if by ship you mean the US Navy, they may have some type of network onboard your allowed to use.

2. Sat. won't work as it needs to be aimed at at a fixed point. The ship moves and rolls. Good luck keeping a fix while that's happening.

Then I can think of no way to do what you'd like.

Although if close enough to shore you may hit some wi-fi hot spots.

You could get a cell phone with GPRS service and a GPRS card for your laptop, but again this would only work where there was cellular coverage.

That would be the easiest way but some providers also make pcmcia / cardbud cards for laptops that connect directly.
