Why would you replace your modem? The tethering plan give you 4GB data and charges you $10 per 1GB of overage. Not very good for a full time connection as you'd eat through your data allotment.
But hey, it's your money.
There are different ways. If the computers and server all had Wireless network cards, you could have the iPhone work at a wireless hotspot using WiFi.
If not you can have your iPhone connected directly to your server via the USB sync cable. Then have your server route all the internet connectivity to the other computers from its ethernet port to the routers WAN port.

I STRONGLY recommend you don't do this.
Using your cell phone as a cable modem for a network will be painfully slow, PLUS, IT managment-wise, unless you want to do it in only an emergency situation (all other access points have failed kind of thing) it's really not smart to do this.

Presto - No more ethernet wires! Though you'll have half your speed.
Just be careful not to place your microwave near it or you'll lose your connection consistently when it's in use.
If you want to throw away $105/$205/$305/$405 a month on using your iPhone as a Windows server connection, go right ahead. But AT&T may stop you before you reach $105 10GB spent usage.
