I do use the cell data to provide a local access point for my main internet connection. Looks like I need to to drop another $10er on more data each month. I started this 3 months ago to see if that will work and it seems OK - until I use more than I paid for. <g>

Name the connections uniquely, keep from treading on each other's bandwidth. I only use about 5-6GB/mo even with videos and some manga. But I don't do any streaming from Netflix or such.
