Still got a year left on your USB 3G or 4G modem contract and wish you’d gotten a Mifi instead? Connect One’s Wi-REACH Classic might be what you need – a mobile wifi hub in which you can plug in your modem and share your connection with up to ten users.
Yep, just plug in your USB modem into the Wi-REACH Classic and you can hook up ten users via 802.11b/g wifi. The internal battery is stated to last “several” hours and can be charged via its miniUSB port. The wifi connection is encrypted but appears to be limited to 128-bit WEP. Still, if you have a USB modem or would like to be able to easily switch between one and a mobile hotspot, this looks like a dead simple solution.
