yes yes and sure (don't know that you asked 3 questions but let's just leave it there) the ethernet connection is independent of the aircard connection....the ethernet connection will manage the connectivity between the two computers and the aircard will connect to your cell provider
looks great, let me ask you one thing though before I start, I assume the computer with the aircard is the host, which would be my laptop, am i going to be able to get a feed out of the ethernet port to go to my router, in other words a signal out of the ethernet port on the laptop for sharing purposes?Let me know if this is how it works, or am I completely off track.
an absolute bare minimum of equipment would be a NIC (network interface card) in each computer and a crossover cable....in my experience crossover networking is a ridiculous pain the the butt...a step up would be to get a hub/switch and assign each computer a static IP and do the networking from there and this should work. since you're using an aircard instead of a standard broadband connection a router might be overkill in this situation since you're not actually routing anywhere...another option would be to have a wireless card in each computer (not cellular but regular wireless) and create an ad-hoc network between the computers for the LAN setup
Also, if you could help me with the cables, router etc, I am starting from scratch
you'd need to be way more specific
ps, do you have any experience with tweaking connection speeds, it sounds like you are very computer saavy
