The MBR1000 router allows its owners to share the connectivity of a supported EVDO ExpressCard or USB Modem with multiple computers through its ethernet ports or wirelessly through WiFi 'N' - but the MBR1000 also has a WAN input which means it can accept more conventional wireline internet connectivity like DSL or cablemodem. The MBR1000 can be set to automatically 'fail-over' between multiple sources of internet connectivity and lets an administrator decide which source should have priority.
The fastest EVDO Downloads average about 2500kbps, or about 2.5Mb/s. That's much less bandwidth than WiFi G is capable of, The answer is WiFi distance. With WiFi N, the MBR1000 is capable of allowing wireless connections from distances 6-10 times farther than other EVDO routers that only use WiFi G.
Key features of the the MBR1000 include two USB ports, one ExpressCard/34 slot, five ethernet ports, three WiFi antennas, and ten LEDs.
