I have a question regarding sharing an internet connection. Since I live in the boonies, up until now my 2 choices for internet service have been dial-up or satellite. Even though it is expensive I chose satellite. Broadband through a wire to my house is not gonna happen any time soon. The satellite is expensive, slow(even though it is a lot faster than dial-up), the customer service is non-existent and it is prone to outages. Now, Verizon has improved wireless coverage to the point where I can get a good wireless signal.

With the satellite connection, I have a Lynksys wireless router so that my wife can share that internet connection on her PC in her office (she works at home). I bought a wireless USB modem from Verizon and tried it out, it is a lot faster than the satellite connection. It seems like a no brainer to switch because it is faster, $60 per month which is the same price, is not likely to be prone to outages and I can likely sell my satellite equipment on craigslist or ebay. Verizon is letting me try for 30 days with no commitment. My question is, Can I use the same wireless router for my my wife to share this connection? If not, how can I use this a wireless USB modem to share ian internet connection?

If the wireless USB modem has been connected to the router that will work with the new service it should.
