How do I Use a Mifi with my Home Computer

Member

 

Here is what I have or should I say what I would Like to do.

Use my home computer online and two laptops with the MIFI

 

I have a router that is connected to the home computer but wont show that its online through the router program but the computer is hook up to the Mifi as a WWAN device do I need to hook the Mifi to the Router but do they make a cord that would fit the router connection also how would it stay charged

Thanks Marc

I would simply connect all three computers wirelessly to the MiFi.  You can get a USB network adapter or an internal network adapter for the desktop.  You don't need your router.

I just got the MiFi yesterday after using the 150 Modem for two years.  My PC is does not have WiFi, but my laptop does.  How can I get the MiFi to work with both simultaneously?  I'm pretty computer savvy, but not familiar with routers and network adapters.

You can get a wireless adapter for your PC that plugs into a USB port or you can get an internal wireless adapter.  WalMart or Best Buy or any store that sells computer stuff would have a USB wireless adapter.
