    Hello all,

    Okay hear is the problem that I am faced with... I have a Virgin Mobile MC760 3G broadband device, I want to share that 3G internet connection with my D-Link DIR-615 router so that I can connect to the 3G over WiFi on my other devices.

    The host computer that the 3G device would be plugged into is running Windows XP version 2002 Service Pack 2.

    I realize that they do sell 3G routers but I would like to use the D-Link DIR-615 that I already have to avoid buying another router. I also realize that it may be easier to share the connection by creating a wireless network on the host computer and then enable internet sharing, I don't want to do this I need to share the connection through the router.

    I don't know if it is possible to do this but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You will need a second network card on the PC so that you can connect it to the router and use Internet Connection Sharing.
