I come to realise that my current telstra USB modem (sierra wireless compass 885) being used with a pc laptop is not directly compatible with OS X 10.7.3. My basic need is to have an internet connection on my Macbook and an ideal situation of being able to network with pc, Apple TV and possibly a backup device such as time capsule.

So, I figure my options are to either purchase a new compatible USB modem and router, or purchase a wifi router that will allow me to connect my Mac to the internet wirelessly through the existing pc connection.
Please advise on the viability of these options, insofar as the likelihood of establishing and maintaining such a network without the need for a fixed line ethernet ADSL type connection. Further to this, I would appreciate any recommendations for suitable modems and routers.
