Use wireless broadband device as net source for AirPort?
I live in an area with no DSL or cable internet, and use a Sierra Wireless AirCard W801 to connect to the net. This device can be tethered via USB and be used as a wireless modem for just the device it is tethered to, or it can be used as a wireless LAN for up to 5 devices.
The trouble with this is that, when used as a wireless LAN, the 5 device limit is quickly reached.
Could I tether the Sierra Wireless device to the AirPort, the redistribute the signal to more devices?

I think the only way (short of reading all the manuals) would be to try it. I would bet that it won't work, for a number of reasons.
