    Cellphone modem ---> Wifi router?

    Hi guys.
    Nice forum. This is my first post here.

    The question is the next: I'm using my cellphone (Nokia N95) as my modem to connect to the internet.

    I have a wireless router (Linksys WRT54GC). Id there a way for it to work? That is, I want to make a home wifi hotspot (where I can connect my PSP, iPod Touch, laptop, etc.) using my cellphone as the primary internet connecion.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd say no because the connection device (ie, modem) needs to be connected physically to the router's uplink port.

    The closest I can think of is to connect your phone to a PC and have it make the connection to the net, and then connect the pc to the router (now a switch effectively) and do it that way.

    Bit messy though.

    That makes sense.

    I'm guessing you could use either a PC running Windows with Internet Connection Sharing enabled or just a Linux box configured as a router (although can you connect the N95 to Linux??)

    Google suggests "to an extent".

    Erm, how about this?
    Joiku - JoikuSpot Light
    Probably wont work with PSP tho as this creates an Ad-Hoc connection rather than infrastructure mode.

    I've used the WM6 version, WMwifirouter and it works quite well. Just need 3G where I live now!
