SMC SMCWPBR-3G Wireless 3G Portable Router Review
Create a wireless internet hotspot anywhere in just seconds. Road warriors can easily access the Internet on their notebook, tablet or smart phone instantly without having to fiddle with 3G dongles or cables. Furthermore, sharing a single Internet connection with a number of devices would definitely save some money.
The SMC SMCWPBR-3G offers a portable yet versatile solution: it converts Internet connectivity from an existing 3G USB modem into a wireless hotspot instantly. It also allows up to eight devices to be connected simultaneously. This could be the ideal router for connecting WiFi-enabled peripherals such as smart phones, laptops, tablets and gaming devices, or when a couple of friends gather for a gaming session.
Unlike its competitors, this router does not have an integrated modem. This offers flexibility if the user decides to upgrade from a 3G to a 4G connection. Another great feature on the router is that it has a rotational USB port, allowing the modem to be positioned to get the best reception as possible. It also has a built-in battery which offers up to 6 hours of battery life.
