Question on Multi-unit functionality

Threaded View

   I have several work sites that I visit every day. I have access to
all the hardware and Admin rights on the OS (Windows XP). The sites all
have internet access, a main computer hooked up to a small
router/switch (no wireless capability). I need to be able to access the
internet and the main computer to transfer files from my laptop while I
am in the building. I presently have a Palm 700w and I am getting ready
to buy an Intel laptop. The Palm has Internet access and I retrieve
email from my comcast account regularly. It has integrated Bluetooth
(and so will the laptop). I plan on synching email and files between
the two.
    Is there a bluetooth or wireless USB stick that can allow me to
piggyback onto the main computer at the site and access the internet,
or will I have to go to the router? If so, what device do I use?
   Any tips?

If you are asking about a usb-to-Bluetooth adapter, there
are many.  However, all require that the Bluetooth software
be installed on the host computer.  Do you have rights to
install software on the desktop computers you want to
connect to?
