I have a Treo 700 and I am using  PDANet to allow me to use my laptop.  Works great on the laptop.  I have a router that I use with a satallite for Internet on our desktop computers.  It is unreliable (weather kills it). I'd like to be able to use the Treo to pull in the signal when the satellite is down.  I've not been able to figure out how to use the 700W and PDANet as the source signal to then use with my router and LAN.  The router is a D-Link DI-624 and I have it sending to 2 computers using D-Link DWL G-120 USB adapters.

Come on gang. No fresh ideas?  Satellite was out all weekend - no internet for my hard working family.

Sorry, but the no replies means either no ideas or it won't work. In this case it won't actually work because there is no way to share the connection from the Treo 700w to the router.

You could try creating an adhoc wireless network between the PCs and "bridge" the PDA connection on your laptop to your adhoc network. But this will require modification in all computers, and break the current network, causing all types of problems when the satellite link comes back.

I wouldn't go there...
