how can i setup a LAN using my Telstra Turbo PrePaid Usb Modem to share connection through my NetGear N150 Wireless Router (WNR1000) so i can use my iPod Touch on wifi, i did it once successfully already but moved house and have forgotten how to configure the IP settings again. Please help i know it is possible but I'm going round in circles trying to get it back to how i had it.

I had to look that device up. I've never used a USB modem.

Unless your router has a USB port that can be configured as a WAN port, you can't use it the way you would with a regular modem.

I suspect you would have to enable ICS on that USB modem, if you can. Then once that's done, plug your computer into the router with a network cable and then configure the router's LAN side with an IP address in the same subnet as the computer. Then you could create and enable a WLAN on the router.

If memory serves me, and it's been ages since I touched ICS, it assigns your wired network interface the following IP: with subnet mask:

So, you would need to use something like the following on the LAN side of your router:

Default Gateway:

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
