Internet

I know most people use some kind of hot spot, for internet.

Unfortunately, my job requires my computer be connected to an internet router, via Ethernet cable, for security purposes.

Is this possible to do, on the road?

I've tried looking up portable internet routers, but, to be honest, I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking at.
I've tried looking on the page and I can't find any information on computers being connected to a router via ethernet cable.

But, I'm really, REALLY hoping that this is still possible to do, to take my job on the road.

If I understand correctly what you are describing you could use one of the common cellular modem/hotspots and use a client radio on your laptop that is connected by a wired ethernet connection.

I use a Ubiquiti NS2 to connect the wired ethernet port in my desktop to connect to my AT&T wireless hotspot.

And you can connect your computer to the router with an ethernet cable?

Hopefully Cadillac will chime in here. All he does is work on the road apparently with big files and such. He has addressed this here before somewhere but I've no idea what thread. And he really knows his stuff.

Verizon recently started selling a unlimited hotspot plan again. You're always deprioritized which may or may not ever mean anything. As I recall the plan was in the $70/month range.

i have a verizon hotspot tethered to a Mofi 4500 router. the mofi gives me a more robust network than the hotspot alone.

the mofi gives me wireless inside my bus and maybe 100' outside. it has ethernet ports that i can connect anything to, and all the bells and whistles that mobile routers offer... fail over to other connections, either sim card or wifi. you can allow guests to use your connection, and you can cut them off.

check out these guys:
https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/

i became a paying member years ago and the literally hold your hand while helping you make the best choices for mobile internet. they have a ton of content on reviewed equipment, they know the options and plans available better than anyone, and they will listen to your individual needs and guide you to what suits you best.

my mobile setup replaced my home internet, i just got to carry my jetpack into the house and hookit to the home router and im back up again.

I looked far and wide for a hot-spot for my AT&T account that had a wired Ethernet port and could not find one.

What are you all using that has the Ethernet port?
