can I use this product with ATT wiresless USB Mercury datalink?

We live where landlines are not practical for internet access. I have a ATT wireless USB Mercury datalink attached to my wife's Mac. I want to share the internet with my MAC G4 and My daughter would like to use hers when whe is at home. How does the system set up ? Does the datalink connect directly into the base station or does the internet come through my wifes computer and then is distributed to the shared computers. Does hers have to be on 10.5 and do all of the Macs sharing have to be on 10.5??? I have use airports before but have had some problems with the 'sharing' setup ... so I am a little unsure about this solution.

  • No. Only Ethernet devices are supported on this device directly. Or you can run internet sharing through your unit and tell the base station to connect to yours. You will need to use bridge mode.
