It should work if you enable Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) on the computer with the cellular modem. If you don't have one yet, however, look at the MiFi; it does what you want in a much easier to use modem.

The mifi shares via wifi only if you don't use it's USB cable to connect to a PC.  When connected, it doesn't send out wifi signals.  Just thought I'd toss that out--if not connected to USB, the mifi will provide wifi for up to 5 devices.  I love it!
