    Something like the WiFlyer (http://www.alwaysonwireless.com/wiflyer.html)
    could work, I imagine.

    Can you supply more details on how you use this? I asked a question here
    about a month ago about using 'Vision' high speed for my home computer
    (no dsl or cable available & satellite too expensive & slow on uploads).

    The answer I got then was that it wasn't satisfactory for internet
    access. Primary use is web browsing/email with occasional downloads for
    software updates, etc. Being able to network a 2nd computer would be
    desirable.

    Thanks,

    Charlie

    Lets take it one step at a time.

    First, connect your Sprint phone to your computer. Assuming you have
    the appropriate data cable and drivers (drivers can be found at:
    www.futuredial.com ), you'll need to create a "connectoid" or DUN (Dial
    Up Networking) entry. This is done the same way as if you were
    connecting a modem to your computer to connect to the internet.

    Start Button > Settings > Control Panel > Network Connections. Use the
    New Connection Wizard.
    1) Select Connect to the internet
    2) Select Set up my connection manually
    3) Select Using a dial-up modem
    4) Select you Sprint USB phone
    5) Type in any name you want, i.e. Sprint Phone
    6) Type in #777 for the phone number.
    7) Type in your Vision username and password

    Second, enable Internet Connection Sharing on the computer your phone is
    tethered to. Go back to Network Connections (see above) and right mouse
    your new connectoid. Select Properties > Networking Tab. Find
    Internet Protocol then Properties. Both Select Obtain an IP Address
    Automatically and Obtain DNS Server Automatically should be checked.
    Next, go to the e Advanced Tab. Select the Windows's ICS sharing to make
    your computer a router (it will be a DHCP server with IP gateway address
    of 192.168.0.1).

    Test your connections. From the primary computer, go to any website. If
    you can get there, then your connected to the internet via your phone.

    Third, connect your computer to a hub. All other computer that are
    connected to the hub will get a dynamically assigned IP address from the
    primary computer's DHCP server (usually starting off with 192.168.0.2).

    Fourth, set the TCP/IP Properties on all the other computers. Select
    Obtain an IP Address Automatically (it will be obtained from the primary
    computer's DHCP server) and Obtain DNS Server Automatically (see below),
    and also under Advanced Settings, set the Default Gateway to 192.168.0.1

    Diagnostic steps as needed:

    1) At the OTHER COMPUTERS, go to the Command Prompt,
    Start button > Run > Type in CMD or COMMAND for Win98)

    2) At the C Prompt, type in IPCONFIG (then hit Enter) and you see the IP
    address assigned as 192.168.0.x, default gateway as 192.168.0.1, and
    don't worry about the DNS server addresses yet.

    3) See if you are seeing the primary computer. At the C Prompt again,
    type in PING 192.168.0.1 (that's the IP addy for the primary computer,
    i.e. the Gateway) and you should get four response:
    Reply from 192.168.0.1: bytes=32 time=1382ms TTL=47

    4) See if you have basic connectivity. At the C Prompt again, type in
    PING 216.109.112.135 (that's the IP addy for yahoo.com) and you should
    get four response:
    Reply from 216.109.112.135: bytes=32 time=1382ms TTL=47

    4) See if you have URL resolution (converting a URL to an IP addy). At
    the C Prompt again, type in PING yahoo.com and you should see:
    Pinging yahoo.com [216.109.112.135] with 32 bytes of data:
    Reply from 216.109.112.135: bytes=32 time=1382ms TTL=47

    5) Download Opera or FireFox and enjoy your internet experience.

    Re: Using my cell phone as a wireless modem

    Umm thats not what I asked. i asked if i could use my cell phone as a
    wireless router. AKA NOT WITH A COMPUTER like lets say I am out and about
    bored and wanna browse the web but dont anna usee the crappy browser wtih my
    cell phone soI wanna use the one in my psp. Is thier ANYWAY I can hook the
    cell phone TO the PSP not to a computer. is thier any device I could use to
    hook up the cell phone so it can be the equivelent of a wireless router
    without the need of using a computer

    Forget using the term "router". That's not what your looking for.
    Besides, your cellphone has no DHCP capabilities and therefore can never
    be a router.

    It sounds like you want to use the built in browser of your Sony
    Playstation connected to the internet via your cellphone with USB.

    No...it cannot be done. Period, end, stop.

    Here's why - - - Your cellphone is a USB "device" and can only connect
    to a USB "host" which is a computer (desktop or laptop). Your PSP is a
    "device" also and can only connect to a host. You cannot connect two
    clients together, nor can you connect two hosts together, however there
    are special smart cables that allow you to connect two computers
    together with a USB connection. Basically those special smart cables
    have a device/host/device midspan so the each computer sees a USB device
    out there.

    Unfortunately there is no special cable that can connect two USB
    "devices" together. Unlike the old RS-323 serial connection method where
    you could use a null modem to swap the data pairs.

    No..wait...there MIGHT be a way!!!

    Connect your cellphone USB to a wireless print server (the wireless
    print server can act like a USB host, but...but...you would have to
    figure out how to load the necessary drivers to support your phone into
    the print server. Then WiFi over to another printer server. Now you'll
    have to write your own USB drivers for the print servers to recognize
    the the phone and PSP

    Since Linksys wireless routers Linux build for firmware, its likely
    their wireless print servers also run Linux. All you have to do is write
    some new Linux firmware code with embedded drivers and you're home free.

    By that logic nearly all of my routers aren't really routers, since they
    aren't handling DHCP. But of course they are routers. In other words,
    DHCP and IP routing are two entirely different functions. A router may
    have DHCP "server" functionality, but that's not what makes it a router.

    As far as the rest/point of this thread... never mind, don't want to get
    into it.

    I suppose I should have qualified my answer a bit to include that.

    Bottom line is he wants to connect a USB device to another USB device
    and that's not realistically going to happen.

    I should have added a smiley face to denote my sarcasim about writing
    his own Linksys firmware.
