upgrade replacement to Telstra BP3 EXT USB 3G modem
Hi, I have never really had much to do with 3G mobile broadband modems. But my folks have a Telstra BP3-EXT which while it is working fine appears to need the USB connection to work and only really works well with one computer. Looking to upgrade it to something a little more robust but in particular that can share the internet connection by ethernet as well as WiFi.
Specs that need to be retained in common with the current BP3 EXT are:
- takes the Telstra SIM from the current BP3-EXT and slots straight into the new modem
- that small coax connector option for external antenna (my folks are in a very low reception area, ie rural, and have a roof mounted antenna for reception).
New features I am looking for:
- WiFi N
- 4 port gigabit ethernet
I don't have a particular budget in mind yet although cheaper is better. But feature set will take precedence over price. Would also prefer something available in local stores (Adelaide) as I would like to pickup before close of business wednesday.
Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated.
