You can plug your Overdrive into your computer using the USB cable. If you install the driver (which I think that it will prompt you to do) you can then use the Overdrive as a new network device. So the Overdrive will become your wireless adapter. It will still function as a hotspot for other devices. BTW this is based on my experience with my Overdrive on my Mac but it's reasonable to assume that this will apply to a Windows machine as well.
