There are a few ways. It depends how and where you want to get online.
One way would be to purchase a CF Wi-Fi card, (about $65, made by D-Link, Lynksys or Netgear). This will allow you to access the net via your home or office wireless nework (assuming you have one). The CF Wi-Fi card will also allow you to access the net at any of the numerous public Wi-Fi "hotspots". Airports, cafes, city parks and hotels are the most common public places that provide such access, and the number of such places is growing. There are websites out there that list where such hotspots are located in various cities and states throughout the country.
You can also purchase a CF Wireless Modem card from a wireless internet service provider. You will have to subscribe to the service (about $40 to $70 per month), and purchase the modem (about $200 - $300). Make sure that the coverage area is compatible with where you want to acess the net most. There are national companies, but their coverage are seems to be limited to major cities.
The last way that I know of would be to purchase a Dial Up Modem CF Card. (Not sure how much they go for, but between $50 and $120 would be a close guess.) This will allow you to connect it to a phone line and dial up the same Internet Provider that you use for your Desktop PC.
