How can I send my internet signal from my laptop to my wireless router?

By j1o0s3h4 ·
My name is JOSH and I am in the USAF currently deployed in Saudi Arabia. I have a laptop running Windows XP connected to the internet using an aircard. I also have in my possession a vonage wireless router with an active account. If I can transfer this signal from my laptop to my router, I can used my vonage phone and call my family on a regular basis.

How can I send my internet signal from my laptop to my wireless router?

I'm thinking Internet Connection Sharing

It's worth a shot, and I think it would work. If you go to Windows XP help and search for Internet Connection Sharing, there is a wizard which should be linked in the help topic to walk you through configuring ICS. Using ICS in conjunction with a Cat5 cable to your router (as you stated would be the way you'd like to go) should work. I can't imagine why it wouldn't. I completely understand that the Vonage router will want to talk to Vonage and I can't see why this method wouldn't work. I'll research it a bit more, but if you can start with this and let us know where you end up, I'm sure we can get you talking to your family shortly.
