Question by strangefrogg: Routing Wireless Broadband AirCard devices…any bright ideas?
I know a few folks who have retired their DSL lines in favor of wireless broadband, and I can’t blame them. These are folks who already have portable computers, and who primarily use their internet connection for web surfing and email. For them the ‘slower’ bandwidth of a Wireless Broadband connection isn’t a problem, and the convenience of a broadband connection they can take anywhere is pretty obvious.
However, one of the downsides of trying to use a Wireless Broadband connection at home is trying to route it. With cable or DSL, you get a $ 50 router and in a few easy steps the connection can be used by as many computers as you’re likely to ever have, plus your X-Box, Tivo, and fridge if you want….I haven’t seen any out of the box way to route the AirCard devices at all. The only way I can think of would be a ‘fixed’ machine on your home network, plug the AirCard into it (hopefully a USB one), and use the operating system to route it but that’s going to be tricky. Ideas?

No My Friend, there are many routers out there that you can plug a 3G wireless card into and rout the internet connection to your home devices.
Here are a few from D-Link, It depends on if you use a EV-DO or a HSDPA network (Depends on your service provider) on which router you would want to use.
