I'm current using a Squeezebox Duet connected to a Linksys Wlan router with my wireless PC running SqueezeCenter 7.01.
Now the interested part is no WAN is connected on my wireless router. My wireless router is only providing wireless LAN to my SB Duet, SC on my PC currently.
My only access to Internet is running the USB HSDPA modem on my PC.

So I wld like to know how to configure SC so that it can access internet through my USB HSDPA modem?

I'm assuming you're running Windows? You can use the internet sharing feature to bridge the two connections together.

I tried but failed.
I managed to perform ICS on my USB HSPDA modem which was connected to my PC.
But my internet connection is not shared to my WLAN router.

Must I :
1. connect use a Cat5 cable to connect between my PC NIC to my WLAN router WAN input?
2. Bridge the LAN connection to my Wireless connection?

Can guide me?

managed to get it working.
My HSDPA modem connection is shared through my wireless router to All the other connections.

One critical step is to set static IP on the rest of the PCs, squeezebox and NAS connected on the router (whether its wireless or wired) and also the gateway should be set to the IP(192.168.0.1 is normally auto set in WinXP after ICS is triggered) of the host computer(HSDPA modem connected PC).

The steps are decribed in the link below:
