Default Can I use my own wireless connect card for the internet?

I would like to know if I can use my own att connect card on my laptop to connect to the internet, or will I have to rent one from Carnival?

Carnival internet service is kind of expensive and I would like to save where I can.

Even if you have your own wireless card, you still need to use thier network to connect. There's no way around it.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

You can't use your att connect card to use their network becuase that card is for using the cell towers. If you use that and there is cell service you will be charged 1,000s of dollars of misc. charges. If your computer has an integrated wireless card you can use that to connect to their network. Or you can buy on at like best buy or office depot. That should work because it is a network like any other network.
