Wireless internet

I currently am using the UMW 190 USB MOdem on my laptop.  I would like to be able to expand this internet connection to devices like my Nintendo Wii in the house.  Is this possible without buying a defice like the MiFi?  The only reason I dind't purchase that was because it claimed to only have a 4 hour battery life on wifi and then it was just a glorified USB modem after that.  To me that is basicly useless.

 

Any advice that can be given on if I can somehow transform my USB internet into a Wireless link for at least my wifi even if I have to run my laptop to do it would be appreciated!

 

Thanks

They have cheaper models. You just have to study the features of each and decide what you need.

You need a CradlePoint router. I have an MBR1000 and it works great. You plug your USB modem directly into the router. Then you connect your computer and other devices to the router wirelessly or plug them into the router. I got mine here: http://moremobileinternet.com/
