    Does anyone know of a device that will allow one to plug in a wireless card (like from Verizon, Cingular, etc.) and share that access on a network? I guess it could be done from a laptop (or desktop) w/ a PCMCIA card. But I was thinking about something a little more compact and hardware based. Sort of like a modem that was put out by 3Com several years ago. It had a 56K modem and an 8 port hub w/ just enough firmware to allow you to set up your ISP's DUN settings (I'm dating myself here).
    What brought this to mind was the fact that I live in the sticks and am currently using HughesNet (used to be DirecWay) and I am getting a little tired of the latency.
    Thoughts? Comments?

    Why, yes.... that is EXACTLY what I mean. How did I miss that in my search of Linksys's site? But I sure wish they had something compat w/ Cingular.
    Muchas Gracias
