Question about Sabrent USB 2.0 NT-USB20 Ethernet Adapter
Satellite modem - Ethernet cable connection to Netcomm NB504 wireless router - Standard RF cable to Desktop PC - Netcomm wireless USB key for laptop (laptop not WI-FI - needs the Netcomm key to receive signal) - All works well.
New Setup: Changing Broadband provider. No cable network available (hence the expensive satellite ISP) but now can access "3's" wireless broadband with the assistance of an external antenna using the Huawei E160G USB Modem (much cheaper rates and gets good reccommendations from others in the area).
Problem: Now I need to get the Broadband signal to my wife's laptop via the Netcomm USB key and wireless router.
The 3 Broadband USB modem plugs into my Desktop - all works - fast internet etc. My desktop does not have an Ethernet out socket to connect to the wireless router. I've been thinking something like this might help... USB 2.0 Ethernet 10 100 LAN Network Adapter Card RJ-45. Would a gadget like this enable me to initialise the wireless router through the desktop - therefore getting signal to my wife's laptop again?
If I get you right you are useing a 3g Internet connection and have a router wich conets the 2 computers together, the problem is that you can't share the internet connection.
Without any information about the operateing systems I can tell you the idea:
First you need to disable DHCP server on the router and use static IP addresses on both PC, the IP address should be something like
Network mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.0.2
In this IP configuration above PC1 has the 3g modem connected.
This was the easy part, hard part is to share the internet connection on the network, that's a little different ritual on every operateing system, try to use google to get your specific one.
However there's a much more easier way to solve all your problems if you can't make it work, but it costs money. All you need to buy is a 3G router and that will do the same thing for you what your old router did.
I did a little search for you on Australian Ebay to see what you can get.
But I'm sure you have your own cheapbfavourite source of computer hardware as well.
Hope this will help you sorting out your porblem.

Tips for a great answer:
you might have a modem with an ethernet connection to connect to the net .
if you have a laptop you can choose a wireless usb broadband modem which can work on a desktop also once you recieve the modem just insert the modem into a usb port and follow the prompts you might need some drivers for the usb broadband modem which can be supplied by the ISP internet provider
hope this helps

do you have a Wireless Router + Broadband modem?
This is like a base station to which your remote wireless node communicates (to get connected to your home network and internet.
something like this http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=187337 for an ADSL connection.
If you are on cable, you can either get a Router similar to the one above (but for cable) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01
or if your Cable modem has LAN ports you may just be able to use an "Access Point" to add Wireless capabilities. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1126536803676&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0367639789B22
