Question USB modem card to wireless router.


I was wondering if it is possible to connect a Verizon USB modem card to any router with a USB port for a wireless signal through out the entire house.

AFAIK not with the default firmware. They typically are for printers and storage devices. However, it is possible using dd-wrt if you have a compatible router
