Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The only way to get 2 machines online at the same time would be to network them together an setup one machine with Internet connection sharing. This machine would need to be on when ever any machine wanted to use the Internet.

Setup the aircard and right click on the network connection and select properties. One of the options should be Internet connection sharing.

If this doesn’t work for you, then you will need one aircard per person.

    To my experience, using Internet Connection Sharing as described above by Mrdenny is "twitchy" when using an aircard (connection drops, signal strength issues). I would strongly suggest either accessing the Internet one at a time by swapping the aircard between devices or obtaining a separate aircard for each device along with a sepatate access number...
