Does it work as a 3G router??

What if i have a USB Dongle that provides me with internet wirelessly through my 3G network, if i attached the USB into it, will it use the 3G internet to connect me through, and to access the setup to connect??

    The airport extreme cannot do this (per previous answer) but you can create an ad-hoc wireless network in OS X to share the internet connection with other computers and devices. The one limitation is that it only supports WEP encryption, not WPA or WPA2. there is an article on apple support on how to do this with OS X Leopard (computer to computer network), however, the instructions should be the same or similar for Snow Leopard.

    Also, cradlepoint router products support this capability.
