How to build a wifi network around a Verizon wireless broadband usb device

I have a macbook that I connect to the internet with a Verizon wireless broadband device (AC595U) that I would like to be able to share with my PC desktop and my iTouch if possible. I'm fairly new to apple and know very little about networking. Is there a way to network for my needs?

That service is only made for one computer. You will have to run a seperate broadbend service either a DSL or cable service to get the rest of the computers to work. The modem the provider will give you will then connect to a router which can connect the rest of the computers that way.

I have my internet Broadband connection in my office .And I want to share this broadband connection network into my home through WiFi . But the problem is that my home is almost 1 mile away from my office...


No. Wifi has a distance of 120 feet indoors and 300 feet outdoors in a perfect environment.

Even if you were able to install wireless repeaters for the wifi you will experience many networking issues.

If you wish to share your internet you may want to look into a mobile hotspot. You can take that device anywhere where the service provider is covering.

Wireless dongle won't connect to verizon wireless network. Wireless Password is entered into TV Internet connect screen and returns a message "Error Unable to Connect". Device is not listed...


Make sure everything is compatible for the type of wireless network you are using g/b/n and you are using the correct radio frequency. Also make sure you are using the correct wifi dongle for the make of your TV. From what I recall I do remember some of them being proprietary because the TV will have to have pre-loaded drivers for the wireless dongle.

Don't have a router just yet just have the usb wireless card


This usb adapter will allow you to pick wireless signals of wireless router. If you have a free wifi like hotspot airport wifi then you can connnect to it and use wireless internet. Othjer wise you got to have a wireless router with broadband connection before you can utilize wireless internet facility.

Hope this answers your query.

Dell Wireless 2350 BroadBand Router


You may get some benefit from downloading and installing Netstumbler

This util will allow you to scan the channels and select a chanel with less devices on it. then change the broadcast channel in the wifi router. This may reduce interference in the connection.

Also cordless phones are notorious for interfering with wifi routers so put some distance between the router and the base if you can.

Another option is to get an external antenna for the router to boost signal strength

something like THIS or THIS and place up high on a shelf. Just check your router antenna is the sort that comes off... should unscrew. not all do unfortunately so be careful not to break yours!!

BTW - the router is not a bad unit but it also is not the best around either REVIEW
