Sharing Verizon Wireless Broadband with Other Computers

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Tom - Columbus, Jan 2, 2006.

  1. Has anyone successfully configured a Verizon Wireless Broadband card to
    work with a wireless router to share the broadband signal with other
    computers? I do not have much experience with IP stuff, but my basic
    thoughts are as follows:
    - Verizon card is in PCMCIA slot, leaving the network port available in
    the laptop.
    - Internet Sharing Service built in XP will pass private IP #'s through
    the network port.
    - IF (only) I could get the router to bind to one of the IP #'s
    provided by the MS Internet Sharing Service and hand those off, it
    seems like it could work, but I haven't been able to find or determine
    the details to put it together, or to identify why it wouldn't work if
    there is some obvious limitation that I can't see. Any
    advice/direction would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Poke around this site http://www.evdoforums.com/index.php There have
    been some successes and some failures with it by people over there.
