Verizon Aircard/laptop and router

Verizon / Pc card

Specs: Windows XP
I have a Verizon aircard which works VERY well. I live 100 miles from Phoenix.

The laptop is getting old-the fan is out of it so I have to sit it on a box fan to keep it working. NO money to buy a new one.

Can I use the laptop to make the internet connection with my PC? After reading some on this forum, it appears I would just have to hook the two to the router, start up the internet connection on the laptop and I would have internet access at the PC. But maybe I am completely off base.

I have both a Belkin Wireless router and a Linksys. Never used them-they are probably 3 years old.

Which router would be best? And do I need to load the software in BOTH computers? TIA

you don't need the router. just a crossover cable from nic to nic. Engage ics on the host containing the aircard
