Windows 7: Connect Mi-Fi to a Router for Sharing

Laptop A ____Cable_____ Laptop B___________Nothing__________ Wife's PC

Connect wirelessly to Huawei E585 (Internet Only)

Hello folks,

Above is my current architecture. Internet is fine (the only annoyance is that any device connected to the Mifi (Even if not using the internet) divides the internet connection and makes it very slow. Say Speed on Laptop when it is the only device connected to the Mifi is arouns 1mbps, then my I connect 2nd laptop to Mifi - internet speed on laptops 1 & 2 are 500kbps each. Kindly note that the Mifi does not allow the two laptops to connect together. Here is what I am trying to do;


Laptop A - - Wireless- - - - Laptop B - - -Wireless- - - Wife's PC

Wirelessly connect to Belkin G Router and make network and sharing possible (Belkin does all distribution)

Belkin G Router connect to Mifi (as if Mifi was a PC) for internet purposes only

This will make that my internet speed will remain constant as only 1 device will be connected to the Mifi and I can have sharing between PCs and internet connection will not be divided when another device is hooked up to the Network.

Thanks for your advice and assistance.

You must plug in the mifi via the usb cable into one of the PC's... as aem asked earlier... which is it plugged into?

Also, there is no way to plug the mifi into the router and have it work in the way you want... even if your belkin has a usb port that is for external hard drive and or a printer.

The Huawei E585 is a 3G wifi modem, it is not connected to anything physically.

It needs to be plugged in to keep battery charged and for heavy usage... running on batt only isnt a good idea!

You also must configure the mifi dashboard via the usb connection, have you done that?

Hi,

Yeah the modem is charged all the time via USB to wall power point, the dashboard is already preset by the ISP. I can amend anything I want Except the 3G Network.

Can you connect the Huawei to the wife's desktop via USB? then see if you can get internet on it. Then see if you can connect from the laptops to it's wireless network.

According to the instructions I found online you do need to plug into a PC and configure on first machine... did you follow the instructions that came with it?

Hello Folks,

Problem solved by acquiring a Router with 3G capability. Th Huawei has very limited features and the Belkin as well. I was trying to make something impossible considering what I Had. I just wanted to thank all of you for your help and assistance.


Kind Regards,
