I recently bought a linksys E2000 router and i wanted to share internet connection with other computers using this router. I am using a wireless EV-DO device for internet connection. Will i be able to share this internet connection with other computers using the router?

the EV-DO device should be using USB which you will not be able to directly connect to the router

No...i can not directly connect it to the router.....because I can connect the EV-DO device on a usb port............but i was thinking that if i connect it to one computer and make that computer to share its connection for other computers.....I tried that but it didn't work....so i guess the router must have an internet connection plugged in it???

I would change the LAN IP of the router from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.254.1

then connect the WAN/Internet port of the router to you computer's network port.

finally you need to setup ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on you computer

Thanks for the reply....i'll give that a try......but this also means that the one computer that is EV-DO attached to it will have to be connected to the internet port of the router all the time? thanks.
