Can I share a USB modem with service from Sprint or Verizon?

Q: I have an IMac and a Macbook. I also have a Sprint Ovation U727 USB modem. How do I access the internet with both computers with the one modem?

    They make a product called the “CradlePoint EVDO Router CTR350” and you can read a review of it at http://www.evdoinfo.com/content/view/2124/63/

    From the review “CTR350 is compatible with most USB EVDO modems including the Sprint U720, 595U and U727 (shown below), as well as the Verizon USB720, USB727 and 595U” you can see that the router supports your modem.

    This device will let you hook up your USB modem to it and it will create a wifi network for you. There is even an Ethernet port that seems to now work in newer versions as well.
