Sharing My 3G USB Mobile Broadband Connection

by tznomani / April 24, 2011 6:39 AM PDT


I have currently the following connection:
A Seimens Gigaset SE568 Wireless Router connected to a DSL Line and broadcasting a WIFI signal throughout my house. I receive this WIFI internet connection on my laptops using their respective WIFI adapters, and on my desktop using a GASKY GS-28USB Wireless USB Adapter, and use this internet connection simultaneously in both desktops and laptops.

Now, I am shifing to a new 3G USB Mobile Broadband service:
Where I can directly connect the 3G USB Mobile Broadband Stick to my desktop or my laptop and use the internet directly, but not all at once through my router as was previously configured.

Is there a way using the existing hardware, can I configure my desktop to share this internet connection and broadcast from the GASKY GS-28USB Wireless Lan Card to the Seimens Gigaset SE568 router and then throughout my house for simultaneous access, or directly share the internet through the GASKY adapter itself, or is there some other configuration I can use ? Please give me a detailed description of setting it up if possible.

My Desktop has Windows 7 installed as an operating system.

Thanks in advance.

PS: The links for the product pages are as follows:

1. GASKY USB Wireless Adapter
High Power Wireless LAN USB Adapter

2. Seimens Gigaset SE568

Already in Windows 98 Microsoft implemented ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) to allow all PC's in a LAN to share the Internet connection on one of the PC's. It's still supported in Windows 7.

The only disadvantage (apart from the necessity to have both computers up and running to use Internet on the one not connected to Internet directly) was that it was nearly impossible to setup for anybody except the experienced network engineer. But they might have done that better in Windows 7.
Search in Windows 7 Help and Support for ICS and try it.

If you have Windows 7 their is this thing called Connectify , that allows you to share your internet with another computer , pretty much your saying.
I have been using Connectify with my kids when we go on trips, I share the internet through my USB broadband , and they can use it right off my computer. It makes your laptop a wifi hotspot so any other computer can connect.
i hope this helps

And came up that I had to use another thing to make it work. Where does it show that this usb internet stick is supported by the SE568?
