Sharing AirCard access between laptops

By vasansrini ·
I have HP laptop with Vista and have verizon wireless aircard. Also have a dell laptop. Is there a way I can get internet access on dell via the air card on the other laptop. What kind of hardware/cable would I need?

You can use your Air card on both machines but you cannot have them both using the Air Card at the same time. Verizon would be happy to sell you a second Air Card. They aren't intended to be networked.

If you want both your machines to network, you will need an ISP that will support a wireless router.

Good luck!

I am sure you know of some illegal and unethical hack that will allow you to do this?

PAY for a service you are getting? What is the world coming to? :0

Aircard Sharing

Don't buy two cards. I use one machine as the internet gateway, connection sharing and a wireless router. You can also use the two laptops and create a adhoc network. Takes some tweaking but works great.

Another way to share is via setting up your laptop's wifi as an (encrypted) access point. It's easier to setup than an ad-hoc, allows multiple computers, is invisble to the client end (just a normal wifi AP) etc. Most chipsets (ie Intel) allow for this functionality now.

How would you go about hooking that up.... I have 4 computers that i want to hook up via a aircard that i have received from my service provider.... I have been told by many people that i cannot do this due to the fact that i dont have a network set up with all my computers...

Moore's Law?

Doesn't technology increase exponentially, doubling approximately every two years? Nine months should show some new technologies!
