What do i need to do in order to have Internet in my XK?

This may sound like a dumb question, but this is something i have always wanted to do. I look at my XK as more than just four wheels, it's my office/Home away from home. So my question to you is what do i need to do? Let me know, and if anyone has done this, pictures and or a write-up would be awesome! Cheers Guys!

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just put an aircard into your laptop?

Verizon wants about $60 a month here for an air card and 15 a month to add the extension from the cell to LT. So you spend $60 either way. The aircard is faster but you get cell service the otherway.

This is definitely what I was thinking, but I don't know if they make anything for Mac.
