Mobile Broadband & Internet Connection Sharing

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a laptop running windows 7, and I am looking to plug in a verizon mobile broadband card and from there share the internet connection with my Linksys Wireless Router.

The Problem I am facing is the computer that has the Mobile Broadband can surf download and do whatever but the rest of the computers on the network can not see jack.. what kind of options would you recommend.

I believe you need to bridge the connections. Have you done this yet? Should be relatively similar in Vista SP2.

With All Due Respect I think you are confused!


I have a verizon wireless mobile broadband card that works though USB, I want to use the ethernet port on my same laptop and feed it into a wireless router so I can have internet everywhere in my house...

If you need pictures let me know

well in order for packets to flow from one adapter to another (in this case usb to a nic) the connection would have to be bridged. Make sense?

Then because there is no DCHP service on your laptop the ip of the wireless router needs to be static and then serve dhcp.
