    It would be good to see a version without the ethernet ports. If it could be used as a USB modem as well that would be a bonus, as well as being powered by USB if it was in Wireless mode, that would be incredible.

    Didn't know that existed

    Would be good to see a non-network locked version out there though (which will exist if there is a 3 version).

    Thanks

    Comedy comment of the week.

    Most mobile phone companies barely provide any sercice in rural areas. 3g would make it easier to provision 'broadband' but it would be good if they actyually provided a service that works first.

    No.

    1. That's not a MiFi, it's a Huawei clone that Three calls MiFi. I don't know why Novatel lets them get away with it.

    2. The Huawei (and the real MiFi come to that) are WiFi only, the Netgear is a proper wired Ethernet router too.

    3. The Huawei and MiFi have reduced WiFi power. You'd struggle to cover anything more than a big room with either mobile router.

    4. You can't put the Netgear in your pocket

    Too true!

    Although very "Rural" I actually get a pretty decent landline ADSL connection at around 4Megs on average. What I DON'T get is any 3G from anybody unless I drive to the top of the hill!

    I want an afordable Femtocell so that I can use up some of the credit on my mobile!
