Hi All,
Generally I avoid this mob like the plague, but I see Telstra have come out with a decent mobile braodband plan, with their new 'BigPond Ultimate USB' wireless broadband device.

I run a Airport wireless network at home which is connected to a fairly slow ADSL service, is it possible to connect one of these wireless devices to an Airport Express/Extreme - to feed the internet connection to all my wireless devices?
I live in the middle of a CBD and suspect this wireless service might be faster than my current ADSL.

regards
Vulch

Gidday Vulch,

I don't believe you can connect directly to your Airport Base Station, however I simply use one of my machines as the base depending on where I am.
I am considering a "travel router" designed for the purpose, but it's probably not necessary, just enable internet sharing on the machine with the dongle connected,

Cheers,

P
