Trying to share 3G internet on PC to router.
I posted over on Reddit for help first, but ultimately the issue is unresolved. Anyone trying to help may want to look at the conversation I had over there.
I'm on Win7x64, Enterprise N. Ultimately, I'm trying to get my PC, connected to the internet with a 3G cellphone by USB, to share the internet connection with my router, which can then share it over the wireless. I've done this before, but I can't remember whatever I did to ultimately get it to work. However, I may be using a different NIC driver, and I am using a different Cellphone and a different driver for it. But the connection information and method is the same.
When I had it working before, I had the PC connected to the router's Modem port, but the person attempting to help me on Reddit says that shouldn't matter. He also recommended that I ignore the router for the time being, because ICS isn't set up right on my computer. Right now I have my PS3 in it's place, connected to my PC's NIC card with a non-crossover ethernet cable. (I don't have one, and didn't when I had this stuff working before... but that may be an issue.)
My understanding at the moment is that there should maybe be a drop down box on the Sharing tab for my internet connection's properties, but there isn't. There also isn't even a sharing tab on the LAN's properties.
I've easily spent 6+ hours on this yesterday (and not counting past attempts to restore the setup where I just gave up.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
