5 out of 5 eggsLoving it

Pros: * Easy to setup (just like any other router through the web admin)
* Portable with case
* Battery when you have no AC power avail

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I just received my router and within 10min, I had a WPA2 wireless secure network with my Verizon 3G USB adapter. I have the ability to get on my WiFi iPad anywhere and could create a WiFi hotspot in my car now.

Just make sure to check the compatibility list before you buy it instead of writing a bad review.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with T-Mobile

Pros: 1. Works with T-Mobiles webconnect USB modem
2. Built in battery for those times there is no power outlet to find.
3. WAN port can be configured as either uplink or part of the 3g shared network
4. Good amount of configuration/tweaking (what you would find in a home router vs a mifi)
5. Lots of choice with wireless encryption.

Cons: More nitpicking, not real design flaws.
1. Get started guide should just list the APN and default dial-up numbers for the major five carriers (read below) in the US.
2. Green/White: Really, makes this very cool device look like a toy,

Other Thoughts: Initially bought this to share my tmobile 3g usb stick with my daughter when on AMTRAK going between NYC and DC. Very happy with the purchase, it does the job well.

1 out of 5 eggsTotally worthless

Pros: None that I know of. If it worked I could evaluate better

Cons: Is incompatible with the Franklin U301 and there is apparently no way to contact the company. Go to their web site and you will find that this product is not even mentioned.

1 out of 5 eggsGo With Cradlepoint

Pros: Cheaper than Cradlepoint

Cons: I bought it.

Other Thoughts: After HOURS on the phone with Aluratek They could not get it to work with Alltel UM-175. Tech support would not call back as they said they would. I sent them the log files they requested but would never here from them until I would call them back. This went on for over a month. I finally got tired of this and Newegg graciously refunded my money.

4 out of 5 eggsThis router works with N900

Pros: Has battery (1700mA/H)

Works with Nokia N900

One touch easy AES setup

Cons: No wireless switch, requires to go to setup page

Nothing else this time

Other Thoughts: I bought this router because Cradlepoint one doesn't work with N900, but this one does.
