Can I use my WWAN card with the AirPort?
I'm about to buy a MacBook Pro to add to my current iMac, which is using a Verizon WWAN AirCard. I would like to be able to share that connection, and need to be sure that I can do so. So, do I need to use an AirPort at all? Can I use the WWAN with the AirPort? Is there a better solution?
Thanks for your help!

It is not necessary to use an Airport base station to share your WWAN card. You can use the Internet Sharing feature built into OS X to share the WWAN connection via Airport. The Macbook Pro will connect to your iMac via Airport which will share its WWAN internet connection.
