Good morning Tom, as others have mentioned the Mobley can be tether to a router via it's USB port. The cover on the Mobley's USB port makes it almost invisible. I'm no techie but as I've learned here and on other forums it seems that a router wired to a modem like the Mobley provides faster downloads and uploads than a wireless connection.

Correct me if I'm wrong but a router that will connect to a modem via a wireless connection is called a WiFi as WAN. It seems the big names in the business charge a bundle for these because they are not common ways of connecting a router to a modem so it's a nitch market. For me I got a Mobley because the plan is cheap and I don't want to spend a bundle to allow the Mobley to connect to more than 5 devices. There are cheap WiFi as WAN routers on Amazon and Isaac-1 posted one and went to great lengths getting it to connect tethered to the Mobley. He even posted the step by step instruction on another forum.

But it's been my experience with cheap Chinese electronics that they don't last or require constant fiddling to keep working. Sometimes the instructions if any with these things leave more than a lot to be desired. And their grammar can be comical. I haven't decided which router I'm going to get and it sounds like the nano has served you well.

I am doing USB Tethering on my Mobley using the cheaper GL iNet MT300N-V2 $20 on amazon https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B073TSK26W

Isaac, could you post the steps you took to tether your Mobley to your GL here? Or a link to the forum where you've already posted them? Thanks!

The travel router arrived today. TP-Link TL-WR802N.
 Connected to my iphone personal hotspot to check out.
Works well and easy to set up.
Speeds as follows:
Direct tether to phone download 6.56 Mbps , upload 5.05 Mbps
Connected to tp link download 6.39 Mbps, upload 3.16 Mbps

Nothing wrong with those numbers.
Also tested again connected to phone and the wired ethernet connection, both worked well at same time.
Had to do all through phone because in Canada the Mobley will not connect. I
Just getting ready for travel in spring.
Tom, thanks for sharing router info.

Tom, thanks for sharing router info.

You're welcome Bob. As I said, credit is due to Jeff. Thanks for sharing the results. I wonder if someone has comparative results with a router hooked to Mobley via USB  :-[
