i wouldnt worry about internet
connections until hitting port, as most wifi
is locked and requires a password to unlock-also has such short range..half mile max, isnt it??-there are free wifi
areas in many cruising areas, but this is something that is dependent upon the area..goood luck--i use a broadband
dial up card and do not worry about wifi--i am able to use my card wherever there is a cellular tower....for a fee...up to a few miles away from said tower...my sprint card works in mexico
and usvi for no more charge than in usa.....
