Above are the two items i own. I only have internet access through the aircard 779s.

Im trying to hardwire a couple devices and this is why i purchased the powerline 1000 adapter. The thing is my hotspot is a modem/router and it has no direct etherenet access. Im wondering if theres any work around to get the powerline to sync with the hotspot?

DHMXDC 300Mbps Multi-function Mini Wireless-N WiFi Range Extender Signal Booster 802.11n/b/g Network Repeater/Router/AP with WPS is about $20 on Amazon.  Appears that its Client mode would work for you.


Reviews on it are mixed tho but for the price worth a shot.

If your hotspot is connected to your computer you should be able to use it as a router with internet connection sharing, another router or software to turn pc into a router. I setup something similar for my folks but a little more advanced so they can use cellular as their main internet through out the house. Let me know if you are interested in learning more.
