The NET-3G-HW550 creates a secure Wi-Fi network by supporting the latest wireless security features to prevent unauthorised access. It supports 64/128 bit WEP, WPA, and WPA2 to ensure that you will be able to secure your Wi-Fi network, regardless of your client devices. In addition, the 3G Mobile Router utilizes dual active firewalls (SPI and NAT) to prevent potential attacks from across the Internet. The product integrates 2x2 (2 transmit and 2 receive) antennas. This MiMo technology overlay the signals of multiple radios which successfully reduces “dead spots”, increasing throughput and increasing wireless coverage range.

By connecting a HSDPA USB modem into the USB port of the NET-3G-HW550, the Internet can be accessed and shared virtually anywhere within a wired or wireless broadband network. You can also directly connect Ethernet-based devices to its built-in 4-port full-duplex 10/100 switch.
