    Is it possible to tether the android to a wireless router? Which will enable wireless internet access to my PS3 and Laptop? I am using at&t service with the at&t wireless router. I would like to replace the at&t service with the android Verizon internet access and tether it to the At&t Wireless router.

    Not that I know of, and not a smart idea either. For one, Verizon is pretty strict with thier 5GB cap. Two, you wouldn't be able to use it for PS3, as it is too SLOW. Especially with latency. If you consistently go over their cap, Big Red will drop you faster than apple files patent lawsuits.

    How would you connect it to your wireless router anyway?

    The only thing I could think of would be bluetooth, and that would SUCK, IIFFFFF it worked. The idea would be great in a perfect world, but it ain't gonna happen.

    i use a broadband card on ps3 and its not great but works okay enough to play. I use a router from the company called cradlepoint. you can plug your 3/g cards directly into it. not sure about android devices tho probably not.
