I've been running my home internet through my POS laptop using it as a server and all my other home systems as clients. This effectively makes my router a HUB and adds 10-20ms of latency between my systems and the outside world. I've heard rumor of there being 'aircards' or standalone wireless broadband modems but have yet to find one that I can use with this wonderful *cough* Verizon Wireless service.... Help! Anyone seen one around?

I'm not understanding where your internet connection is coming from - your laptop is sharing it's internet connection? But you have a router? You indicated you want a wireless broadband modem but you're currently using verizon's wireless service. Can you explain a little more your current setup and what you're looking for please?

I have Verizon wireless broadband, they run an EVDO wireless network. I've found a router from Kyocera that has a port for my USB modem which is my incoming internet connection. What I'm trying to find is a USB wireless broadband - EVDO modem that outputs to ethernet. I'm trying to avoid having to spend another $200 (which happens to be the price of the Kyocera router) to find a solution.
