Guys,

Need suggestions on wifi router !! :D

Planning to use it along with the cable net from local ISP and 3G sim card. :eek:hyeah:

I will be traveling too so just wanted to know if is there any portable router which can allow me to use both the connections and set up a wifi for my mobile + laptop and lan port for my desktop.

Own LG optimus one...so it can be used for wifi tethering when i am out but don't know how good reception it will provide and again if i get a call....it will drop the network too !!

Suggest me something as i am a complete noob :ashamed: ...as i have never used wifi routers except the wired one DSL 802C with MTNL !! :p

what u suggest guys....router with all this or router + separate data card ? and please suggest some models with prices if possible.. !!

AFAIK, what you want is not available here ~ local ISP + 3g dongle + portable all three in one.

i mean the normal wifi routers can share local ISP net through wireless network....bt the same router cant have a usb port to plug in a data card or insert a sim?

Nope. AFAIK, none of the portable ones have the option of using the local ISP connection. The only one i know with the LAN connection is an ASUS slim model, but it does not have in built battery. The ones with a 3G SIM inbuilt have no LAN port to connect to the desktop.

How is this one?

D-link-wireless-n-300-adsl2--4port-ethernet-router-with-usb

In specifications it says "Compatible 3G USB adapter connection" !!!

Does that mean it can be coupled with USB data card or mobile using USB tethering and then set up a wifi network?

If you want a router for RJ45 input and say a Tata Photon+ stick, then those are available with EkWireless. But get your model checked for the type of 3G model you have.

How is this one guys? any better?

Asus RT N13U 3G / DSL Wireless N Router Print Server All In One WIFI With 3G USB

It is coming with 3 years warranty too.....just wanted to confirm whether it can help me set up wifi using local cable net and 3g sim/data card and connect with laptop and desktop the same time, through ethernet port and wifi respectively?

I very much doubt it can do a dual WAN on stock ASUS, but on DD-WRT it might be possible. Also, check and see if your donge is supported.

USB dongle list.

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

Will repost ASAP on the dual WAN thing.

on stock ASUS f/w, no. This is the message i get when i plug my dongle into the USB port and select CDMA2000

After enabling HSDPA connection, the WAN port will change to LAN port, please remove the original cable.

That's absolutely fine mate....!!

I mean i ll be using either usb modem or cable net plugged into router at any point of time!!

and then setting it to provide dual connection...wifi for notebook and lan cable from router to desktop for wired connection !!so at any point of time...only one input connection will be in service and two output modes available viz wifi and lan !!

man it doesnt support UMG 1831? was planning to buy that one only :( any suggestions on dongle then friend?

btw do you have the same model? btw what is DD-WRT? no clue :(

@swapyword, it is possible to make voice calls as well as 3G video calls using UMG1831, have personally tested it, you need Huwaei Mobile Partner 16.x.x for that
