    Check out this router from AirLink

    Just found this and wondered if anyone out there have heard or used them. I am interested in this to kee in the Landmark. What an awesome price for a 3G wireless N router. Already checked and it supports my Sprint USB Aircard.

    Mark,

    We've used the Airlink AR360W3G 802.11g Wireless 3G Mobile Router with a Sprint Pantech PX-500 PCMCIA card for the last three years with no problems.

    The router is light weight and feels a little cheap but the performance is excellent.

    The newer router that you are considering is most likely an excellent choice at a great price.

    cradlepoint has always had competition, but none of them measure up (in my opinion)

    i've personally tested dozens of routers, including airlink101's first 3g router... none of the routers i've tested to date, have comparable ease of use, advanced features, and most importantly -- carrier/modem support.

    We just upgraded our old Linksys router (purchased from 3GStore) to the Cradlepoint MBR1000 (purchased from 3GStore). Wow, what a difference in speed and 3G connection. Also purchased the Wilson Antenna and that really made all the difference in the world in our now constant connection to 3G service. Many thanks to the staff at 3Gstore.

    The support and knowledge of the staff at 3GStore are worth every penny spent on excellent internet equipment. Will continue to be a customer because I know they stand behind what they sell and have always been able to answer all our questions.

    Just our honest humble opinion. Remember the old adage, "You get what you pay for"!

    Hey CJ, how did your antenna install go? Hope it went well. I know it took me a couple of hours total.

    Hi Mark

    The antenna install is still a work-in-progress! I think all the needed tools, equipment have finally been gathered but things have hit a stall - maybe DH is working up his courage! It is a scary thing to be drilling a hole in the exterior wall. I am just sitting back letting him work at his own pace, making sure he has everything planned out.

    We have just run the antenna cable through a side window for the current time.

    Hopefully, I will have some 'final install' news soon!

    I agree. I was scared to drill that hole in the rear cap but after I was done I felt pretty good. Only time will tell.

    A router is a device to share your internet connection with others whether it be wired or wireless. A router can share a DSL connection, Cable connection or in my case a Sprint Aircard 3G connection. The antenna is a way for us with Aircards to get better reception. We can take it a step further and add an amplifier if we wanted to.
