Netgear Adds Integrated 3G Connectivity To MBRN3300 Router

Netgear has been in the router business for years now, but connectivity is changing. It's not just Wi-Fi that we need access to anymore--it's 3G as well. The company's newest broadband router makes sure to integrate that very functionality, with the MBRN3300 featuring an internal 3G modem as well as the typical features you'd expect in a Wi-Fi router.

Inside, the device has an Ericsson 3G HSPA radio for connecting to cellular data networks, an 802.11n Wi-Fi radio and support for hard-wired Ethernet connections as well. It features four 10/100 Ethernet ports, EV-DO or HSPA data support and tons of security additions. There's even an optional car power adapter for taking this on the road and giving your automobile a taste of Wi-Fi while on the road. There's no word on price yet, but it should be out soon.


Mobile Broadband Internet anywhere – use the MBRN3300 to share your 3G broadband across multiple devices via WiFi or Ethernet - at home, in the office or while traveling.

Hmmm strange maybe it's just my area though. I can get Clearwire, Sprint, or Comcast 4G here. I have not tried it, and am thinking they are all the same network as they all appeared around the same time. The Clearwire Sprint thing I know is the joined somehow, the Comcast wireless I am not sure is a part of it though. It did show up at roughly the same time though.
