You would only have WiFi in the woods if you are there to use it. If you are not there in the woods then the WiFi doesn't exist, just like the tree that falls and no one hears it. HaHa. Hope that helped. By the way: If a man is alone in the forest without his wife and he says something, is he still wrong?

Does Virgin Mobile 4G Overdrive Pro allow you go to Facebook, Email, etc? Yes. Then the answer to your question is yes.

Question
Speed to CPU.. wireless G or N?
3g or 4g means nothing if the speed from the hotspot to connected computers is is on Wireless B or G.. So what is the speed to LAN computers? I would hate to think the hotspot is a "bottleneck" now.

You're going to need a Mac or Windows PC to start your Virgin Mobile account and configure the Overdrive Pro. The DVD player doesn't meet the system requirements for the Overdrive. Once you've created a Wi-Fi hotspot with your Overdrive you should be able to access the web with any Wi-Fi enabled device.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS - Overdrive Pro
• Mac Requirements: Mac OS X, 10.4 & Higher G4/G5
• Windows* Requirements: Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7
• Your Mac or Windows PC must be Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11b/g/n enabled to connect to the Overdrive Pro OR have an available USB port.

Requirements for a USB Tethered Connection
Your device supports a direct connection through a USB cable to a Windows or Mac computer. (This is commonly referred to as a “tethered” connection.)
See page 26 in the Overdrive Pro user manual at http://www.virginmobileusa.com/resources/phones/prepaid/manual/OD-Pro-user-guide.pdf

Your Virgin Mobile account is setup using a browser window. The Overdrive Pro is also configured using a browser window. The Overdrive's device drivers will be downloaded to your Mac or Windows PC from the Overdrive. You must use a Mac or Windows PC to setup your Virgin Mobile account and configure the Overdrive.

Once you've created a Wi-Fi hotspot with your Overdrive you should be able to access the web with any Wi-Fi enabled device.
