Sharing the Internet with air card

Dear Computer Geeks:

I was wondering if Internet sharing can be used so that others in my chapter can get access to the Internet? I use the Verizon air card and it doesn't seem to show up for others. Would each of them need the software and the device? Can I attach it to a wireless router?

Hi Rick.
 
Yes, you have it exactly right: You can attach your Verizon air card to a wireless router. The one that we have is a Cradlepoint MBR1000 router, purchased from 3GStore.com. The Cradlepoint will also allow you to plug in your cell phone with a mobile access plan. In either case, the end result is your very own wi-fi hotspot and you can allow several people to connect to it. Just be sure to watch your bandwidth limits!
