Verizon wireless broadband modem card and Wi-Fi?

By dannidanni1970 ·
I live out in the AZ desert and my only connection to online is through my Verizon broadband modem card. I really want to make it Wi-Fi so I can update my Psp and Ps3 players and do maybe do remote play. I have a laptop with wireless installed. I have a Netgear router, but I think it only supports cable and dsl...

Put a second nic card in your existing machine with the verizon broadband card. connect that card to a switch and enable internet connection sharing on your vz broadband enabled machine.

You can use the Netgear Router once you add a NIC Card to the Computer

With the Version Wireless Adapter. Or if you already have a NIC interface in your computer use that.

Instead of using the Modem Side of the Router all you need do is plug in a CAT5 Cable to one RJ45 Socket on the Router from the added NIC Card. You'll have to go into the Routers Setup Software to setup the WiFi Connection and any Security that you require so do this from your main computer with the Version Card in it.

Once you have everything setup you need to run the Network Setup Wizard on your Main Box and set it to Share the Internet by telling it that this Connects Directly to the Internet and other Computers Connect to the Internet through this computer.

Once this is done you should have your WiFi LAN working and be able to upgrade your Play Stations.
