I have a Telstra Pre-Paid Mobile Wi-Fi modem (has built in wi-fi and supports 5 connections) and I am wanting to connect it to a local wi-fi network and then shair the internet connection.  I wish to do this so I can setup a local wi-fi network with more than 5 devices and still be able to connect to the internet using the telstra modem.

A sumiltanious dual band router running ddwrt can connect to a wifi connection on 2.4 and rebroadcast on 5. The only other way I know how it to take one router or an access point like the dlink 2100ap that can run in bridge mode to turn the wifi wired, then a second router to create a new subnet and wifi you connect to.

You can also use a laptop instea of the first router.
You could also get a USB cellular modem and a router that can use it as it's wan connection.

I've used the dlink Dir-825 successfully but I flashed it with ddwrt. Never tried with stock firmware. Buffalo also makes some simultaneous dual band stuff that comes with ddwrt already installed.
