    Internet Card

    I am leaving for Aruba in a few days and unfortunatly bringing along my laptop to do some work. About how much does an internet card cost for a week? I am in the high-rise area, any suggestions where to buy one?

    Depends on where you are staying. Setar is the provider at most hotels/timeshares. The list of hot spots: http://www.setar.aw/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1435& Itemid=476

    You don't have to purchase a card. You can sign-up and pay through your brower. Cost is $10. day, $35. week, $70. month.

    Divi Phoenix and the Westin do not use Setar. they have their own wi-fi service which is higher priced than Setar. These hotels you can also connect through your browers.

    I just got back, Friday, stayed at the Holiday Inn and bought the 24 hour card, it took abit of time to get it going, but it worked good. It's alot cheaper than the cell phone, just got that bill...LOL. Enjoy your trip.

    Wi Fi internet connection

    If I am staying at a home with no internet, I can still get internet through a brower. I don't understand. Can someone explain how I can pay 70 per month.
    Thanks

    if you are staying at a home where there is NO internet, then no, you cannot get it even if you pay the $70 per month that liz mentioned.

    you must be in a wireless "hotspot" in order to pick up a signal.
    if the house that you are staying at is not an internet subscriber, than you will have to find internt elsewhere.
