This is for a friend...he lives in a rural area with no high-speed internet access. He bought a Sierra Aircard, hoping to get access, and install a Magic Jack. He says that after installing the aircard, he still has no internet access, and cannot install Magic Jack.

Re: no internet access with air card
Before you go to your friend's, download the Watcher program from Sierra wireless onto a cd. And install it instead of the AT&T Connection MGR. For random disconnects and difficulties signing on with ATT Communications Manager download the watcher program @ http://www.sierrawireless.com/support/ copy and paste the complete link into your browser. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

Download and install Sprint's SmartView. Select the download for your computer's operating system. Follow the installation wizard's prompts to properly install SmartView. The aircard should be connected to the computer during installation.
Restart the computer. Leave the aircard connected during the restart.
Double-click on the Sprint SmartView icon on the desktop.
Wait for the program to initialize and recognize the aircard, then click "Connect." Sprint SmartView should activate the aircard automatically.
If you live in the rural area and you have a broadband connection/modem connected to the Netgear wireless router, then I suggest you look at my instruction on how to configure the wireless router with encryption (security) - click on this link for instructions. :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
Yes, you need to get in the router settings and disable DHCP in LAN configuration. That should do it. Also enable the ICS for the Air card. (Right click on Sierra Wireless icon, properties, advanced, check the box next to Allow others networks user to connect through this computers internet connection)
try connecting with a cat5 cable instead of using the wireless. It is possible your problem is your wireless connection and not your service provider. Make sure your ether net connection is not disabled.
I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.
Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.
There are routers you can purchase that will allow your aircard to plug-in to it as opposed to your laptop. Most companies charge you alot of money for going over there limits on usage so becareful. I had a friend that got charged over $900 due to excessive usage.
ok guys ive found the solution. i have a sprint usb aircard and had the same problem for like 6 months and just yesterday i found out how to make it work.
1) connect laptop/ CPU to internet as usual* 2)go to control panel 3) go to network and internet connections 4)go to network connections 5) next tight click on you internet provider thing. and go to properties. 6) click on advanced tab 7) then just follow the instruction to make it a shared connection and thats all to it.
fyi: its probably going to lag alot if your not in a good reception area. other than that the lag is bearable.
