mini HP netbook use with a usb card

I bought a HP mini  netbook when my 2 yr plan was up for my UM175 data modem. Unfortunately the netbook data card does not work at my work since I have to use an external antenna for decent signal. I have switched back to the usb modem on my normal laptop.


On occasions I'd like to be able to use  my USB data modem with my netbook. I know i can shut off the netbook modem but cant seem to get VZaccess manager to use my UN175.


 If I could use the USB in lue of the built in I would not have to switch devises every time I want to take my netbook on a trip


Anyone have any luck doing this?.

You can get a cradlepoint router for your USB card.

A CradlePoint router would be perfect.




the new CTR35 = $79.99




PHS300 battery powered router + free second battery = $89.99 (thru march 31)



Both work with the UM175 and will create secure WiFi when you need it for all your WiFi enabled devices.
