I just got a laptop and have dial-up at home (I'm working on getting DSL). I've heard that you can get free Wi-Fi service at some coffee shops and bookstores, but when I searched, it looks like some of them make you pay to use it. For instance, I read that Borders is a T-mobile hot spot, but you have to pay $10 or something to use it. I know I have a Wi-Fi card in the computer because it searches for service when I turn it on. Thanks for the help in advance.
