    Contact your ISP on how to connect when on the road.
    You don't state how you are trying to connect...modem, NIC card, or
    wireless.
    You don't state who your ISP is.
    Without sufficient information, you will not get an answer.

    You must be within range of an internet access point before your laptop can
    access the internet. At home you obviously are. On the road your are miles
    from an access point. Some truck stops offer internet access for a fee.

    I am not familiar with the use of cell phones for internet access, but
    possibly a connection may be made to the internet through them. Check with
    your cell phone company.
