Windows 7: Connecting WAN to HotSpot

Connecting WAN to HotSpot

I have a wireless Linksys (WRT300N) router with 3 laptops connected to it. I would like to connect that network to a mobile HotSpot (Netgear AirCard 771S) to connect it to the internet.

Could someone point me in the right direction to bridge the two? Do I need a hardware bridge or could I do it from the settings of the Linksys router?

Thanks

i believe you should be able to do that via the settings in the router. I would look in the configuration pages for your router and see if there is a page that has connection bridges or something to that extent on it. If that does nothing for ya; then yes you might very well need to get a piece of hardware in order to do it.
