A friend has a place in the Baja area of Mexico and his computer does not have an internal modem or any router attached at this time, and is a Vista operating system computer. He had a modem provided by Telmex which did work, BUT he asked that when they're not there for months at a time, not to have it used and billed. No one can use it, it's all locked up, but they billed him anyway and no recourse for non-use. This is all around the rental of their equipment (hardware modem setup). This is ridiculous, so the next question is ....
What kind of modem would work so that you don't have to pay Telmex or anyone else for their modems in the Baja area to connect to the internet? Found lots on google that have their own ATT DSL 5400 high speed modem along with a wireless linksys router that works just fine.
Not sure about the laws/issues between Baja Mexico and Internet connection options, but it sure feels unfair to me that someone could charge for equipment and services that are NOT ACTIVE and NOT IN USE, so seeking options and alternatives.
