i have recently purchaced a verizon MiFi 2200 which i use to connect my laptop to the internet via WiFi,which is all ok.i can apparently set upto 5 computers with this one device by networking .so the question is how do i connect to the internet on my home pc,(which is windows XP,service pack 3, ACPI uniprocessor PC,AMD sempron(tm) 3000+  1.99 GHz,448 MB of RAM,PCI soft data fax modem with smartCP)through a network on my MiFi 2200.and how exactly do i set up a home network with this device when i don't think my home pc has wifi compatibility.i usaully connect with dial-up but am over that ,any answers are appreciated.  signed diggerwy.

if your desktop computer does not have wifi, an easy solution is to buy a USB wifi adapter for the desktop.

 

if you prefer to hard wire the desktop, you may want to look at one of the cradlepoint routers like the MBR1000.

you could tether the MiFi to the MBR1000 which would provide you with ethernet ports and much larger WiFi N range.

Probably the easiest and least expensive option would be a USB wifi adapter for your desktop computer.  Using this, your desktop would connect wirelessly to the Mifi exactly like your laptop does.
