It is fairly easy to do, but for those who want their router already configured when it arrives, we can set up your router with the network name and password of your choice before shipping for $15.

My application is in a large class A motorhome. I previously used a Verizon Jetpack, a Pepwave Wifi, and a Cradlepoint router. It worked but was certainly a jury-rig. When my Jetpack died I contacted the 3Gstore and they suggested this product to replace all three of the above components and complement it with the matching through the roof antenna. What a fantastic product. Now, just by sliding an icon, I can select/disable Cellular or WiFi connections depending on my situation. Thus I can use campground WiFi if its good or revert to cellular if it is too slow or not available or for security reasons. The cellular is great but I use the campground WiFi if available to keep my data usage down. I love it.

This router works great. I can now stream video at my cabin

Pepwave BR1 excellent router went in quickly this is working as advertised. Its small and performing well as the primary link is not in use yet.

I am definitely not a computer whiz. The Peplink system was extremely easy to set up and get working. I am very happy with the results, and the internet speed is much faster than my Verizon jetpack. I live in a "dead zone" and the jetpack was just eating up my bandwidth every month. With the Peplink, my problems are gone. Somewhat pricey, but well worth it to me, in terms of frustration and it made my computer work like it should. Thanks to 3g store!

Works Great, fast and easy setup (with help from the team from 3G tho, they were awesome and were able to walk me right through set up). After that it has been functioning perfect. Thanks 3G.

The unit set up very nicely. Only criticism was learning in the process that putting the unit on the InControl 2 cloud service wipped out my settings put into the unit it self. I worked with Valerie in Tech support. She was great. It is my hope that the BR mini at a lower price point will function as well.

Thanks,

Excellent LTE functionality, especially paired with a MobileMark antenna. Works nicely on our RV. Wifi-as-WAN is deficient. Works great for open or simple password-protected situations, but does not work with captive portal networks (e.g. some truck stops, stores) that prompt with a permission page of rules first or ask for login information. Auto-switching between primary and secondary cellular carriers does not work well. As often as not, the switch back will result in a "no device found" and the router claiming there are no SIMs plugged in. Power cycling clears the issue, but it exemplifies the software bugs present in this part of the router software. While useful having two SIMs in the router, expect to switch between them manually as needed.

A++ product works as expected would recommend

Have several now and they have been rock solid. Constantly move them around for temporary internet access and they have held up well. Incontrol management makes remote setup of the unit for site conditions easy. Emails can be setup based on data used, built in VPN server.

Everything we needed, all around great units.

Great unit. Easy to set up (and I am not a network guy). Putting in my travel trailer with external antennas.
