3G Router†Kits

-

3G Routers allow you to use the mobile phone network to connect to the internet. They are brilliant because you can put the router anywhere in your home/office/farm, caravan (anywhere you want to go) and connect mulitple computers/users to it at the same time.† Even better the router re-broadcasts the signal "wirelessly" around your home so wherever you go you can have great broadband internet coverage.

-

There†are two types†of 3G routers.† One is called "Hotspots" and the other is called "3G Routers".† They both work similar in that they broadcast Wifi around your home/office, and use the 2G/3G/4G network to connect your Wifi back to the internet (so no broadband land-line required). The main differences between them both is the Hotspot is portable (battery powered), whereas†the 3G router has a few more features such as you can plug†a telephone line into, it and make calls (voice capabilities) as if you have a land line connected to your house (when in fact you don't!)†and the 3G router has a bit more Wifi grunt to power†around your home office/building.

-

Both of these provide†great options as we have chosen ones which have a direct antenna connection port, so ideal†for†customers who currently experience poor mobile coverage as you can plug one of our AY15 or AY12 Yagi antennas into the router or hotspot†and broadcast high speed interent Wifi†around your home/office/farm.†

-

Go to "Our Picks"†page and choose your provider (Spark, Vodafone, 2degrees) and see which 3G router and Hotspots we recommend. Otherwise scroll down for 3G Router kits.

For 3G Routers we recommend the following

At preset we recommend the Netcom 3G29WN2.† This is called an embedded unit which means the 3G modem is inside the router and all you need to provide is your SIM card (Spark, Vodafone or 2degrees).† You insert your SIM card into the router, and then connect one of our antenna kits to the router (this router has an external antenna connection port).

This router is powered through a 12V DC port (great for caravans/vehicles/boats) and is supplied with a plug in mains pack (240V AC).

If you want to buy on-line and buy this router from us†complete with our popular AY15 kit just click below.† We will have the router and our antenna kit on it's way out to you the following day.

3G Routers and BYO USB data stick

If you already have a USB type modem (either on†Vodafone, 2degrees or Spark)†then you could save some $$ and by a 3G router which doesn't have an embedded modem and has a USB port where you can plug yours in.†† In this case we would recommend the NB16WV router kit. -

-

So the advantage here is you could use your existing data/t-stick.† But for this to be worthwhile you really need a data/t-stick with a direct connection, as our booster antenna kit in the case of this router needs to be plugged into your modem (and not the router as is the case with the embedded router above).† To find out whether your USB modem has a passive or direct connection simply go to our home page and using the left hand side menu system you can find your device and see if it has a direct or passive antenna connection.†† So ideally you want a datastick that has a direct connection for best performance improvement. If your datastick does not have a direct connection then we would recommend our P1047 passive coupling adaptor cable. This page talks about the differences between passive and direct connection.

-

The most popular antenna kit we sell with this modem is the AY15.† The shopping cart below includes the NB16WV router with the AY15 antenna. As we don't know what modem you will be plugging into the router the shopping cart will ask you what USB device you will be using, so we can include the right adaptor cable to connect†the AY15 antenna to your modem.† Please remember†whilst most modems will work with the NB16WV you can check on this page or call us and we can check for you.

Sept 2014 Testimonial

Hi Zeph
The yagi 12 has arrived and mounted on the roof. I have -95 dBi signal which reads GOOD on the Netcom so I'm very happy with that. Thank you for your perseverance to get a satisfactory result. I am a very happy customer!!We now have. REAL internet speeds!! Your quite welcome to use the feedback on your website as I think you deserve it. To many businesses these days only sell things with no backup service or product knowledge or problem solving. As a dairy farmer I learnt a long time ago it's the backup service thatís as important as the price. When we're in Wanaka next we hope to call in and thank you personally. Many Thanks J.

3G38 Router with AY12

Jan 2014 Testimonial

Hi Zeph and team,

I am just emailing to thank you for the 3G router and AY15 Cellular Antenna. They are working flawlessly and to be honest way beyond expectations. I went from getting on average 3 bars on 2G with 1 bar on 3G once in a blue moon if I was lucky for a few hours, to 3G maxing out on 5 bars the second the Antenna was connected. At that point I didn't even bother testing 2G connectivity - whats the point? For the first time since I've had this mobile broadband, which must be close to two years now, I can actually watch YouTube videos in real time. I have never been able to do that. Not even close.

Initially (before the Antenna arrived in the mail) I was looking for a means to ground mount the Antenna about 4 to 6 meters off the ground thinking that was going to be what was necessary to get suitable results in my area, but after getting it and installing it, even with it just sitting loosely on a table outside the window I hit 5 bars on 3G immediately. At that point I just fixed the antenna about 4 feet high onto the corner of the caravan not even really taking any particular direction into account. Not sure if i fluked it or not but it is great.

You guys are awesome, I wish I bought this antenna ages ago. Would have saved me a lot of frustrating nights when the internet would cut out and refuse to even connect let alone download anything.

Thanks guys :)
