Getting the Verizon Jetpack Mifi before heading west next week, how secure are these? Is it okay to do banking over it via Wifi to my laptop?
I keep mine in the 17's front overhead driver's side cabinet, and yes, it gets a bit warm with the cabinet closed. I leave the cabinet open except when on the road, and usually shut down the WiFi while driving unless I'm in an area that is not covered by my AT&T iPhone.
One interesting problem - I have the MHS291LVW hotspot, which has a swelling battery problem. I've already replaced one, and the replacement is starting to swell as well. I suspect the additional heat of the Sleek doesn't help. One other thing - the side pieces on the Sleek block the power connector on the Sleek. I leave them off on the power receptacle side of the MiFi, and use a rubber band to hold it in the Sleek.
I do my banking with the MiFi. To keep others from using your data allowance, use a password that is not obvious. The WiFi coverage can include an area far larger than your trailer...
