I'm testing a Verizon USB Broadband wireless modem. This thing only has one wire - a USB cable that runs from the unit - about the size of large bic lighter - to the USB port on my computer. Installation was pretty easy and it seems to work OK.
I need to set up a home network. My printer is wireless, we have one other desktop computer with a wireless receiver and the kids have wireless laptops. I cannot figure out how to hook the USB Modem to a router. Verizon says they don't support networking with this device and suggested I contact Belkin (the maker of my wireless router and wireless receiver.)
I've contacted Belkin and they suggested I buy their Belkin Wireless Range Extender Part # F5D7132. Prior to buying more parts - since I don't want to open a discount computer parts store when this is done - I downloaded the manual for this device and have read through it. I STILL CANNOT figure out how I'm supposed to hook the USB Modem into anything that will allow me to run a network.
I'd truly appreciate any help on this. I'm about at the point where I'm just going to send this stuff back to Verizon and go back to Hughes.Net.
