Due to circumstances, I have only got mobile broadband where I am living. I have a small network with a ADSL Router (but which isn't connected to the Internet. I want to use ICS to allow one machine (with the MBB modem) to act as the Internet interface and allow other machines connected to the ADSL router (including a new Android tablet by WiFi) to use the single mobile broadband connection.

I've a feeling that my configuration is not valid - as it stands, but I'm not sure.

Can some kind soul lead me "by the nose" to getting this working?

FWIW The mahcines are all running Windows 7

TIA,Paolo

Might be easier to cut out the middle man (the router) and just share the internet connection directly through the machine with the stick, using an Ad-Hoc network.

Use this software on your PC that has mobile broadband, it will turn it into a wireless Hotspot for other PC's. No router needed.

  • This provides a partial solution and I use it when at other locations and circumstances.– PaoloFCantoniNov 30 '12 at 0:37

In the end, I decided to go with a PocketWiFi modem/router. I bought it outright (no plan) and popped the SIM I was already using into it. At less than AU$80 it provided a much more versatile solution.

Thanks anyway!Paolo
