Air Card Usage
      #32180 - 12/20/08 09:52 AM

I'm really new to this whole thing of air cards, but in the near future I'm considering buying a laptop. Could an air card be used interchangeably with a desk top w/ a wireless router or my laptop while travelling? This idea would be to eliminate a land line all together.

There are router products for sharing an aircard connection over WiFi, and these are mostly for EVDO cards as far as I know. Sprint actually used to sell a product for this, but I don't know if they still do. Do a Google for "aircard router" or "3G router" to see products and discussion on the topic. I myself haven't used this kind of setup since we have several computers and the connection speed would be too slow with several computers online at once.
