    My wireless connection is just very slow. We have cable internet and then a wireless router. When I am able to plug the ethernet cable into my laptop there is a huge improvement. Other people in the house do not have the same problem.

    I have a vista desk top and have wireless network set up thru a netgear router. The desk top internet runs very quickly. I also have a XP laptop that has wireless speed that is comparable to the desk top. However my macbook air on the wireless network is extremly slow probably about 1/8 the speed of either the hardwired desktop or the wireless laptop. The network is secured with a password so no oneelse is on it.

    My wireless connection on my iMac is sluggish at best, and when I use BootCamp to run Win XP, it's positively glacial.  18mps max.   I used a usb wireless stick in the XP side and had an instant jump to 48mps.   Why is the internal and newer wireless adaptor so much slower?  D

The onboard card is capable of 802.11n , which is the fastest on the consumer market. Try encrypting your internet connection so your neighbors arent downloading or streaming video online, or all your neighbors are on the signal...if it is YOUR signal. In order to transfer music from your ipod to your computer.....which is not what the ipod was intended because it allows pirating music to be easier,  visit and search for SENUTI

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.

I want to hook up a wireless router to my sprint sierra wireless aircard 595U. How do I do it?

Actually you hook your aircard to the router...
When you turn on your device, it will detect the network being broadcast by your router. The router broadcasts it's SSID (network name) and this will appear on your screen as one of the networks available in your area. Select your own networks and click connect. You will need your WEP (network key) to logon on though so make sure you have this ten letter code before you start.

Necessary equipment to create an Access Point using Sprint Card

Yes, you just need a Cradlepoint Router. The model you need just depends on the card you have. These routers convert your Sprint card to both Ethernet or WiFi internet that you can share with multiple computers / Wii / iPod Touch. See to see the 4 routers plus how-to videos, and Sprint aircard compatability lists.

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3

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.

Sprint aircard 595U to belkin router model no# F5D7230-4

Try connecting the sprint card to your router's internet port. You will need a usb-to-ethernet adaptor, along with a networking patch cable, to connect the sprint card to the router.

Then either connect to the router with your two computers using cables, or wireless. If using wireless, you will need wireless adaptors for each of your computers, preferrably Belkin brand to ensure compatibity.
