The 3G Mobile Wireless Router (model TEW-655BR3G) connects to the Internet either using a traditional hard wired connection or by cutting the cables and connecting with a compatible wireless mobile USB dongle from a 3G* Internet service provider such as AT&T™, Sprint™, T-Mobile™, or Verizon™**.
Designed for true portability the router has a rechargeable and replaceable 2.5 hour lithium ion battery. Compatible with USB dongles from every mobile provider, this compact router connects to the Internet anywhere there is a 3G* mobile connection.
No installation is required, simply plug the 3G* USB adapter into the router to share a single Internet connection. The latest wireless encryption protects your valuable data. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) integrates other WPS supported clients at the touch of a button. An on/off switch on the back of the devices saves battery life. For long trips, power the router with TRENDnet's Car Adapter, model TA-CC.
