Well - you are mixing up two different kind of wireless networks.
Your sprint card connects to the same network a cell phone connects to (EV-DO technology), while your local network at home uses a different technology (802.11).
What you need in order to connect to your Linksys router is a USB adapter like this.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

    Just to make it a little bit clearer:

    Cellphones (and therefore your sprint card) are using en entirely different frequency to communicate. The cellular band commonly referred to as 1900 uses the frequencies 1850-1990 MHz. The other band is PCS which is the 800 MHz band uses frequencies in the 824-894 range.

    Your wireless *B* or *G* network are using the 2.4 GHz range, *A* uses the 5 GHz band and the new *N* uses 5 GHz and/or 2.4 GHz.

    This way they don't interfere, but also make it impossible to use the same device for both networks.

How Do I connect to internet with my desktop without Ethernet cable


To connect wireless to a network ..you need a wireless router or access to a near by one ..and you need to install a wireless card on computer if it has non ..This can be a pci card and you will install it on a pci slot inside and install its driver and after that connect to the network available ..or use a wireless card on usb ..
If you do not have a network free near by ..you can connect using the wireless card to another computer connected to the internet ..or install a wireless router on your Ethernet cable ..and a card in computer or a usb one ..
In my opinion the wireless card and router is the best way cause connecting trough another computer can be tricky and slow..
another way ..if you do not have any other means is to use a wireless modem on usb from a mobile network ISP (internet service provider )
This can be the same provider as your mobile phone one ..

I just bought this router and am trying to get it connect with a Verison wirelss USB mobile broadband. How can I connect it to my computer and an Xbox 360?


For Verizon i found that Currently, the DIR-412 Mobile Broadband Wireless Router is the only D-Link router that is 3G compatible. The DIR-412 supports 3G USB adapters complying with HSUPA/HSDPA/EV-DO/TD-SCDMA networks and works with most major cellular carriers (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Rogers, Telus, Bell, etc).
D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft Xbox to network and experience lag-free online gaming. All you need is a D-Link router to go along with your broadband connection and Xbox Live subscription and you can go head to head with friends and adversaries from around the world.

The D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router, DI-614+ Wireless Broadband Router, and the D-Link DI-604 Broadband Router have all passed the tests for compatibility with Microsoft Xbox Live with specific firmware. Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to Xbox Live.

  • Click here to upgrade your firmware.
  • Click here for Xbox Live setup instructions with a router.
  • For Xbox Live support, please visit www.xbox.com.

    Dont have a wireless card on one of my desk tops can i get the net with a usb stick


    You can install a PCI wireless card in the desktop computer or you can use an USB wireless device. Both of these devices can connect to your wireless router, but they need to be configured with the router's wireless settings.
    If you do not have a wireless router, then you can get an USB wireless modem device that connects to the Internet that uses the 3G mobile network. The advantage of this, you can connect to the Internet anywhere you get mobile coverage with that Internet Service provider.

    Router connection problem


    you will not see your router in any of the places you looked.
    Easiest method:
    Shutdown your PC and laptops. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
    Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC and laptops. The PC and laptops should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider.

    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 http://MoreMobileInternet.com/evdo-mobile-router to see the 4 routers plus how-to videos, and Sprint aircard compatability lists.

    SPRINT SIERRA WIRELESS CARD


    Yes but they must match. Now you use a phone modem via your wirless carier. Sounds like you have a wireless router so all you need is the card to communicate to your router.

    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.

    Hooking Sprint aircard to Wireless Boroadband Router


    You could do this, it would be a bit of work! You would have to dedicate the computer with the sprint card to provide the internet connection to your router, which would then supply all the other computers with internet.

    Assuming you have windows XP or Vista on the machine with the sprint card you would enable Internet Connection Sharing, which would provide an internet connection into whatever is plugged into the ethernet port, your router.


    Hope this helps!
