Trying to share internet on wireless aircard

by hillbie / November 14, 2009 12:40 AM PST

I'm going out of town and will need to pay for internet, so I was looking for an alternative. I have 3 computers that I need to connect to the internet. All the computers have wireless and I have 1 wireless aircard that connects by using dial up when looking at the network connection tab, which is why I'm posting to this forum...I hope it's the correct forum. Today is Saturday and I hope to have this figured out by Tuesday.

I have a Sprint SIerra Wireless Compass 597.

Is there a way to share this internet connection of the aircard without running wires?

Thanks in advance.

For your research.

Look at 3g routers. 3grouter.com and such places.

just another thing to carry

Thanks for your super fast response. I was hoping that I would not have to purchase & carry something else. So do you believe that this can't be done using anything existing on the computers? Do you think that I must have a an external router of some sort?

Why I no longer mention ICS.

You could research ICS but today I consider it too hard on owners and costly to support.

That's why the 3g router is your cheap and easy fix.

It's also why those MIFI wifi solutions came into existance.
