    I am looking to be able to share my Mobile Internet Connection across my LAN.

    My current set up is a MacBook Pro (Leopard) that connects to the internet through a mobile dongle provided by my phone service provider, which then connects via ethernet to a router (Apple Airport Extreme). I then hope to be able to use that internet connection with the other devices connect to the LAN, such as a work laptop (Vista), Apple TV and XBox 360.

    I am not sure what I need to do in order to achieve this,

    Any help would be hugely appreciated.

    not sure how things work over the pond but here I have an utstarcom 175 wireless broadband modem and my research on this says you need an evdo router, Cradlepoint makes afew and so do others.

    if it has a usb connection connects into router and then router either distributes wireless or Ethernet. routers run around 200.00. I am working through the issues also but this is what I know at the moment.
