I currently bought a aircard (usb plug and play modem) from alltel. I got it to work just fine. I then went out to alltel and bought a wireles router (ctr350 cellular travel router) to link both of my computers up to it. For now im just trying to connect my 1 computer up to it. It only has one ethernet cable, and one usb port on it. I connected the ethernet cable up to the router, and also the usb modem, and the other end of the ethernet into the computer. My computer wont detect it and ive tried to run the "make a connection using a wireless device" and the comp still wont detect it. The intstuctions on my router read: Connect your USB modem to the ctr's usb port located on the left side of the ctr. Provided that your usb modem is fully setup according to its associated service provider, the ctr will direct the modem to make a connection (NEVER DID). Once the conncetion is successfull negotiated the usb led light will show green (NEVER DID). Then Associate with your new wireless network by selecting the ctr's ssid from the usual list of wireless networks on your computer. The default ssid can be found on the bottom of the ctr. (NO IDEA WHAT THIS MEANS) Open a web browser and type in and enter your password. (WILL NOT LET ME PULL THAT PAGE UP). What am i doing wrong? Do i need a wireless network adapter? I see in device manager under network adapters it says Broadband 440 x10/100 intergrated controller and PANTECH UM175AL WWAN driver. What am i doing wrong? Im a newbie at this so any step by step infomation would be awesome!

Hey katcharoo -- welcome to G2G :)

Although your router may be wireless, it sounds to me like you are simply trying to setup a wired connection, so a few of the steps they listed won't apply to you, at this time. I'm going to recommend that you follow the steps listed in SpaceCowboy's Home Networking & Printer/File Sharing tutorial -- follow the steps for the Wired Home Network Physical Setup and Wired Home Network OS Setup. If after following these steps, you are unable to connect, please post back here, and we will look into this further.
