    Tether +BB + Wireless Router possible?

    Advertisement



    I canceled my comcast service because the tethering works so well (sprint). I honestly don't see much of a difference in the speeds (using wireless router with comcast).

    Is it possible to hook this up to a wireless router and have internet access on a 2nd laptop? I thought it would be easier to ask here than to have a friend bring over a laptop. I'm not too concerned with download speeds. I don't do any major downloading of music or video.

    I did this along time ago with my Verizon phone, but not through wireless, but it should work the same.

    Enable ICS (Internet connection sharing) on your PC.

    Configure the router so your PC is the default gateway.

    When a wireless connection is made from another PC, it should see your PC as the gateway and use the internet connection on your BB.

    I dont think there is a way to connect it directly via a router. You need a PC.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yes it will work. Don't ask me how but I've seen our IT guy do it when we didn't have any other internet

    If your router can establish a DUN connection I don't see why not. It would be like setting up tehtering on a PC.

    ICS is probably an easier solution though.
