Just because it is possible I wanted to have a 3G-Wifi router so I ordered one from China (where else..).

I was looking for something that could do all/most standard Wifi standards and had a USB connector for the 3G dongle.

This was the smallest router I could find and also the cheapest.

I have tested it with a Huawai 220 dongle and it works fine.

The setup I made to test the auto failover test from Ethernet to 3G was easy. The LAN port was connected to a switch and gave an internet link, 3G was enabled but in failover mode.

I connected to the Wifi with my laptop to check if I could browse the internet. When that worked I disabled the switch port on the switch so that the Wifi router lost it’s internet connection. Within 30 seconds I could browse again, it automatically did the dialup with the 3G dongle.

This is a very cool device for small offices that need internet access all the time,.
