Now I usually connect through my broadband modem through my router but I found another way to connect. I just got a new laptop and...

Through two walls and around many corners COMES... wireless internet.

Yes it seems I can connect through my neighbours two brick walls and into the middle of my house. It's kindof funny cause I don't have wireless lan so that's how I update my laptop. But Two brick walls? not to mention the plaster and wood between the walls and the other things in the way. I find this quite amusing.

I want to know how the majority of other people connect to the internet. As well, feel free to share your crazy connections. (e.x.: through two serial cables up an infrared port and into my router.) :thumb:

Seriously, we have had "Show Off Your Connections!!1" threads twice before. We dont need another. Atleast not now. He wants to know about your connections now how fast/slow it is.

Edit: Yeah, Lets let this go for now. Dont turn it into a speed show-off thread please :)
