Comes with charger. Can connect Five Wireless devices simultaneously. 30-40ft range. Price tag $149.99

This does have some bad reviews. I could find nothing but praise for the previous set ups though. $64 savings going with this set up, I could put that money torwards a wifi antenna and repeater.

I Dont know if you have cell phones, but you could buy a phone that gives you a mobile hotspot. I have a droid X for verizon and it works awesome! There's a $10 charge per month on top of your current plan to use it. I "rooted" my phone so I get it free Its going to be nice to be able to use the laptop while I'm out and about at nights

Re: My short bus "Rolly"

have some "butterfly" latches on the inside to lock it when its parked. they could also double as extra air tightness down the road lol

Re: My short bus "Rolly"

Yea-sticks not really the way to go. You are gonna have splattery welds that probably will not have very good penatration. Find/borrow/rent a mig welder. If you have any kinds of skills (and by looking at your work you have plenty) you can learn how to mig in minutes.
I was working at a place years ago when a welder salesman came in--and his catch was he'd take the secretary-give her 5 minutes training and let her go at it. "Look how easy it is-any of you guys should be able to do it if SHE can!"

Re: My short bus "Rolly"

when you have it running now does other functions work? like radio and lights and the sort? might need to re-wire that blower switch or switch on the main panel for it to work?
