A friend now has only cell phone, and without any broadband connection. He owns a 40xx, and wants to use WiRNS update guide every two weeks from his office. Why not just plug in office's connection? He does not want 40xx appears in the network, draws attention - he's sure he won't be fired for that, he's tired of explainning to IT guys (previous unpleasant exprience, some Windows bugs, they actually erased everything without data backup.)


Here's what he has: a 40xx, a network cable connects to his computer. What to do next?


PS,

Yes, I suggested him visits me, but a good 40 mins drive is too far.

With some difficulty and a USB cable one can use most cell phones as a modem, but it's speed is 14K (or less) and the carrier will often complain if too much bandwidth gets used.

One problem. Replay has to talk to mama before it'll download the guide data. If he has a lifetime subscription, he can try to use the loginauthlogout.dll when he connects to get the guide data to keep everything local without needing an Internet connection. It works for some, but not others & isn't guranteed/supported and will NOT bypass activation.
