Hi...We successfully hooked up the laptop to connect wirelessly to the MiFi2200, the desktop runs perfectly fine when the USB is plugged into the desktop...problem is when it is plugged into the desktop the laptop does not recognize the wireless and cannot connect. Also cannot get the desktop to connect wirelessly. We have a Lynksys router and not sure how to hook that all up to connect wirelessly to the desktop, and be able to have both connect wirelessly at the same time. Ideas???
