Moile internet router (using phone)


[link to this post]
 
Hi dose anyone know of any routers that support sharing a phone im on the one plan and as you know this dose have unlimited tethering but only via a phone if you put sim in a dongle it blocks it, The cheaper the better really as this is not a permanent every day set up

i know i can set my phone as a wireless hot spot and i do this when im at my grandparents house as they have no internet at all and have no intention of getting it, but at home both my sky boxes my 3 desktops PS3 and my printer are all Ethernet and not wireless and TBF i dont fancy buying wireless adapters for all of these as it becomes expensive especially where the sky boxes are concerned (the ps3 fair enough dose support wifi but 1 device out of 6 is not going to get me right far lol

Thanks for help Ash

Try that device, the repeater mode will give you ethernet and just add a switch to increase number of ports.

Phone would remain the router using its wifi hotspot mode.

thanks for the reply id forgot all about wireless extenders lol i suppose that would be a better option that way if i got a phone call it would be easer to answer it

Would this do as like i say with it only been a temp thing dont want to be spending a lot (considering my three is about 19-22 meg it should be enough right ?

Thanks Ash

I was using a Sapido RB1733 tethered to my Samsung galaxy S2 with success.

Where I live speeds were not any better than with ADSL so I stopped using it. I can sell the Router to anyone that wants it at a reasonable price : )
