Possible to put mobile broadband into computer then play ds on wifi?

I don't have a wireless router but I have mobile broadband by 3 and I'm wondering whether I could use it from my computer and sort of create a wireless access point using my laptop. Just wondering whether this is possible?

Erm well it's a dongle, and all you do is plug it in and it works as long as you have it topped up, what should I do first?

First you should tell me is it one computer or more you are trying to connect to the dongle?

If more than when how many, what OS, etc

Come on help me out here. Info please.

Sorry, well my dongle is connected to my laptop and I'd like to put my nintendo DS on wifi without using a router, so if I could connect my ds to the laptop to go on wifi with my laptop through the dongle.

Sorry if it still isn't enough information.

How about the brand and model of the dongle?

This might help too,

It's ZTE 3 dongle. Is there any way to do it then?

I don't think they will talk about whether you can do that on nintendo. I youtubed it before and there was a few videos but they didn't go through it clearly.

There is a video and step by step instructions on their site.

Look into Connectify. It will allow you to use your Win 7 laptop as a wireless router to share that broadband connection.
