Product Overview

The 3G Mobile Wireless N Router (model TEW-656BRG), shares a single Internet connection from a compatible Sprint™ , AT&T™ , Verizon™, or other USB 3G / 3.75G modem with multiple users.

Compatible with USB dongles from every mobile provider, this compact router shares an Internet connection anywhere there is a 3G* mobile signal. No installation is required when the modem is auto-recognized; simply plug and go.

The router can be powered directly from a laptop's USB ports, eliminating the often frustrating search for an electrical outlet. The device also features a built in hanging hook allowing users to neatly hang the TEW-656BRG on the back of a laptop screen while working. The TEW-656BRG makes it easy to share a single Internet connection while in between flights at the airport, at a job site, car pooling to work, or even on vacation with the family. Connecting to the router is easy with Wi-Fi Protected Setup or WPS, which connects computers to the router at the touch of a button and it comes with a handy carrying case.
