Product Highlights
  • WiFi Router for 3G USB Broadband Modem
  • Wireless-N, -G, and -B Compatible
  • Wirelessly Connects to Many WiFi Devices
  • Lithium Ion Batteries For Mobile Use
  • Wired Ethernet Connection

With the Wireless-N Travel Router for 3G/4G USB Modems from Zoom Telephonics, you have the option to spread wireless internet access from your 3G USB Mobile Broadband modem to your WiFi devices while on the road or someplace more stationary, like the office or home. Unlike the 4501 model from Zoom, this router features built-in Lithium-ion batteries so that you can use the router with your 3G USB modem for up to seven hours without any other cables or wires. That means, you can use the router while in the airport, at a tradeshow, on the road, or wherever you can't readily connect to an AC power outlet. In addition, you can also connect the router with the included adapter if there's an AC socket nearby.

Once you connect your USB 3G Broadband Modem to the router, the router's extended range wireless-N networking capability quickly and easily connects to all your WiFi devices, such as Windows, Macintosh, or Linux computers, iPhones or other WiFi mobile phones, the iTouch, and Blackberries, barcode readers, and game stations including Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DS Lite, and Playstation Portable. In total, the router can connect to Wireless-N, -G, and -B devices. Beyond connecting to your 3G Wireless modem, you can also utilize the router's Ethernet jack to connect to your ADSL or cable modem. That way, you can connect those modems with the router to spread wireless internet access within a given location or you can use the router as a backup for any wired internet connections you might have already established. If you have a 3G USB modem and want to spread wireless internet access to your WiFi devices while at home or on the road, the 4506 Wireless-N Travel Router from Zoom Telephonics is a stellar solution.

Your 3G USB modem simply plugs into the router
Allows you to simultaneously connect more than one WiFi-enabled device to the Internet wherever your 3G modem works. Connect your computer, iTouch, mobile phone, game station, barcode scanner, camera, and more
You can also connect the router to your home or office ADSL or cable modem via an ethernet cable for automatic broadband backup to your wired Internet connection
You can either connect the router to a power outlet with its included power cube or you can go completely mobile and utilize the router's built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries. These batteries offer up to 7 hours of stand-by operation or 3 hours of active WiFi data transfer
Supports up to 253 simultaneous users and works with an ever-increasing list of more than 250 different modems
Supports a wide range of Internet service connection protocols, including static IP, dynamic IP (DHCP client), PPTP, L2TP, PPPoE, and 3G

          Comments about Zoom Telephonics Wireless-N Travel Router for 3G/4G USB Modems:

          This router is great for the home office. It accepts more than one device, just as advertised. I am not crazy about the distance (specs say 300 feet) as I can't get real far away, say to my patio. All in all, I'm not unhappy that I bought the Zoom router.

              Comments about Zoom Telephonics Wireless-N Travel Router for 3G/4G USB Modems:

              The 4506 now supports tethered Android phones and iPhones. That means you can share your smartphone data plan for all the WiFi and Ethernet devices. This is huge for Verizon customers, since the Federal Communications Commission forced Verizon to agree to free tethering for all Verizon smartphones.

              I can't say what policies are for other carriers. I do know that the new ZoomTether firmware for Android users makes tethering with Android phones very easy. Can't speak to the iPhone.

              I can use my phone's data plan to feed my tablet, my kid's iTouch and a laptop in the car or in our vacation home. Great product!

                Comments about Zoom Telephonics Wireless-N Travel Router for 3G/4G USB Modems:

                The best part is that it has a battery - the newer cradlepoint models that perform similar functions do not have this feature.

                Otherwise, this is cheap & poorly designed equipment from a software side. It isn't very compatible or intuitive; there are even numerous typos in the web interface. There are a lot of mixed reviews across the internet so I suspect Zoom is trying to break into the mobile broadband router market with an inferior product, slightly lower price point, and a bunch of sock puppet reviewers.

                Caveat emptor.

                I don't know how I lived without this. Now me and the son can surf the web instead of sharing the broadband card. We even take it in the car on trips. He can keep it in his pocket in battery mode and use his Playstation Portable (PSP)as a cell phone using Skype.
