The Huawei D100 Router is a WiFi router with a difference. Instead of plugging it into your landline broadband connection, you slot a standard 3G USB dongle into the top, at which point it shares out the 3G broadband with any device in the area. This is perfect if you’re travelling and need to give the family their own WiFi connection in a hotel or holiday let.
The 3 site claims the router is only compatible with their dongle, which is interesting, but I’m guessing they’ve just been given a head start in the market, after which the D100 will appear for every service provider. Anyhoo, it’s a cool product indeed. The company is pricing it at £69.99 plus a 3 mobile broadband plan.
Just plug your 3 Mobile Broadband dongle* into the router and you’ve got access to the internet that you can share with wi-fi enabled devices such as a PC, Mac or laptop. You can even connect more than one computer at a time, using just one dongle. *The router is only compatible with Huawei Mobile Broadband dongles from 3.
