Question about Linksys WUSB54GSC Compact Wireless-G USB Network Adapter w/ SpeedBooster [WUSB54GSC] (LS-SB54GSC)
I have a Linksys Wireless-G broadband router that is hooked to my Dell Desktop PC. My internet provider is WildBlue Satellite. I am trying to find a way to connect my new AT&T USBconnect Mercury to my Linksys router and get rid of that unreliable and ridiculously expensive WildBlue Satellite. I have other computers in the house and would like to be able to hook up to them also. Is it possible to do this or do I have to keep WILDBLUE???
It is remotely possible but will be very complicated. You will have to leave the computer with the Mercury powered up all the time and use internet connection sharing to provide access to the other computers. But also you will need to reconfigure your router as a dumb switch since your PC will now be the DHCP server. In short it's not easy and not practical - but it is possible.

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
