    My Uncle recently got a new Windows 7 Gateway Laptop Core 2 Duo I think, and a Windows 7 HP Desktop Core 2 Quad with a Radeon 4650. In this deal he got a Bell 3G internet stick, and he wants to replace his Dial Up system with this 3G Internet Stick. He did have a Cradlepoint M1000 Router, and he tried to run the 3G stick through the Router via its USB port, but it didn't work and so he returned the router. My question is, are there any routers by D-Link or Linksys which utilize the USB port as a type of WAN connection, or is there anyway he can bridge the connection between the LAN and the 3G Internet stick?

    Do you need me to clarify this question?
    Thanks

    Ken

    Currently he is not able to connect to the internet with the 3G stick, but software is loading and working. He is not in my area and I wouldn't be able to see what he sees untill Easter or when he personally calls me.

    He did have the Cradlepoint MR1000 and it should have worked.

    What's the exact make and model of the 3G USB adapter. Also, what is the exact ISP?

    The best way to do this will be with a 3G router, you just have to find one that will work with this adapter and ISP.
