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.

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.

Sprint Aircard 595/use with other laptop


No, this would be seen by the provider, Sprint and would be a lot of overhead to track each computer connected. It is too costly and Sprint may not provide the info, mostly just connected times. From what I remember, they are like a modem that dials a number. I am in IT (remote connectivity and security) and I have used Sprint and Verizon cards with many laptops myself. :) hope this helps.

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.

Goto start, Run and type cmd

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.

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!
