Windows 7: Tethering Info Needed Please

08 Oct 2009   #1

Tethering Info Needed Please

Here is what I would like to do, if you guys can tell me if it's possible and how that would help me out alot.

I have an embedded Gobi card, where currently I am getting my mobile broadband from Verizon. I am on the road all the time, and I mean ALL the time. I would like to be able to use other wireless capable devices in the car pulling from my laptop with Verizon. If my memory serves me correct I believe I need some type of special modem? I know alot of people that seem to do this from there crack berries, but I have no idea if my situation is different or how to do it.

I have full 110 power in my vehicle so that would not be a problem.

About a year ago I was taking my son to school and he had his Apple Touch with him. He said that he was picking up my signal but could not connect. That does not work at this time. I have no idea what or how he was able to do this but it was there?

Thanks for the help.

Well if you are getting mobile boardband from Verizon you might want to look at their USB dongle for that service I know they are about $100 bucks then some kind of mail in rebate deal.
If your looking to Tether a phone to your laptop you will need to see what your phone requires to in order to hook it up 60% of the time its a special cable or some type of bluetooth setting. The issue is a lot of companies charge extra to do so I know Verizon wants to charge me another 30 bucks a month to do this with my blackberry even tho I pay for unlimited broadband on my phone. Best bet go see your local Verzion store and see what the deal is in person before just doing so that way you wont get extra charges on your bill.

can easily be done by a mobile hot spot. I even think verizon has them. Plus you speeds would go up. Con's are it costs more
