I connect to the internet on my desktop through my Verizon Novatel 720 USB Wireless Broadband Modem. It works just like a dial up modem except at broadband like speed. The drivers for the modem appear in device manager under the modem category (Novatel Wireless Expedite EV-DO Modem). I can connect to the internet through the VZAccess manager software that came with the 720 USB modem or I can set it up to connect as a regular Dial up connection. I would like to share this connection with the other computer on my home network. For my home network I use the Trendnet 54Mbps 802.11g Wireless Firewall Router (TEW-432BRP) and some of my computer are connected wired and wirelessly. I can share files with other computer on my home network but how can I share my USB broadband connection?

Home network set up

Desktop running Windows Vista Home premium, internet connection through 720 USB modem, Network (LAN) wired to the Trendnet Wireless Router.

Laptop running Windows Vista Home premium, Network (LAN) wirelessly connected to the Trendnet Wireless Router.

Desktop running Windows XP Pro, Network (LAN) wired to the Trendnet Wireless Router.

This article talks about Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) in Microsoft Windows XP. I just glanced at it briefly, it appears that you need two network adapters on the host machine [the one that will be sharing the connection] and a medium for the the client machine to connect to the host machine in order to share the Internet connection.

Bill Gates recognizes the skills... so i suggest you start there and recognize them too...
