Works well

on 6/6/2012

Great device, works great. I use it with a 4G USB modem and it works much better than when the modem is plugged directly into my laptop. Keeps connection up 24/7. Easy to set up. Very good security. I tried a NetGear router first but that did not support 4G, although it claimed to. I would recommend this router.

Easy to use, lots of options through advanced settings for those who are very network savvy, though the plug and play and folks who need to use basic settings on their networks won't be able to access advanced features.

    The Ultimate Travel Router
    The ZyXEL MWR211’s small size makes it easy to take with you wherever you go; the built-in battery allows you to truly use it anywhere. With support for both Ethernet and most popular USB mobile broadband adapters, you can share your Internet connection regardless of whether you are on the road or sitting at home. The router’s built-in SPI firewall, with anti-DoS attack shield and NAT functions, provides protection from threats from the Internet or known networks.

    Share Always-On Internet Access
    The built-in USB port works with most popular mobile broadband adapters. You will find a complete list of supported adapters at www.us.zyxel.com. Your mobile connection can act as your primary Internet connection or as a backup connection, should your wired connection go down. With its built-in rechargeable battery, the router can be used during power outages or while you are on the road. The MWR211 supports adapters from all the major US carriers[ii]so if you change your ISP, you won’t have to replace the router.

    If you are using a metered mobile connection, don’t worry. The MWR211 can keep track of your data usage and send you an alert when you are about to exceed you plan’s limit.

    High Performance Wireless 11n Networking
