Router Verizon 4g Card & Wired

I have two internet connections but only one connection is a "wired" connection. The second one is a 4g Verizon card that provides a mobile hotspot. So no USB option to plug it in. Is there a router out there that will provide me with a redundant connection without me manually changing the settings on my computer? Windows 7 doesn't seem to want to roll from one connection to another without a big fuss.

I was looking through cradle point's website and found this, not completetly sure it that is what I was looking for or not.
CradlePoint MBR1200B Small Business Mobile Broadband Router | CradlePoint

If this isn't possible then what would you guys recommend to get for an air card so I have two connections? The only other internet option I have at the moment is a T1 line which isn't an option for me at the moment ($$$$). 4g is pretty fast where I am at and I have a booster antenna to help that out so it seems to be a good roll over from my current connection, just need to get them hooked up.

Thanks for the help!

It does appear the device you linked to can do what you want. I wouldn't doubt if its running a customized version of OpenWRT inside. I would go this route if you want company-backed technical support.

Supposedly you can do this with an OpenWRT compatible router with USB (such as a NetGear) and a USB mobile wireless device. So if your wired (DSL/Cable) broadband goes down the router will fail-over to the mobile wireless option. It would require someone with some technical skills to flash and configure the router.

Also any trading software will need to reconnect to your broker/data feeds after the fail-over occurs.

I would think you shouldn't have any problems with your hotspot. Just disable (right click) or unplug the ethernet connection and connect to the hotspot. Again you'll need to reconnect any trading software. Possibly manually.

Just talked with Cradle tech support and the MRB95 and the 1200B I linked to will work for what I want.

Thanks for the suggestions MrYou. I am not into Linux at all although I would like to learn more at this point I am wanting plug an play, then more time is spent watching charts and reviewing Someday I want to learn Ninja script as well but need to make time for that as well. Thanks

Nice find. I'll probably buy an MBR1200B to replace my old setup from TP-Link, which is only a 100Mb router with two WAN uplink ports but no support for USB 3G/4G.

I purchased a Nexus 4 a few weeks ago and will be switching my cell service from Verizon to T-Mobile. I pay about $90 a month right now at Verizon which includes unlimited data (grandfathered in). But I really never use it, and I wanted to upgrade my Droid Razr so decided to go with Nexus 4 on Tmo.

Tmobile has a $30/mo prepay plan with unlimited data and 100 minutes. I never use any minutes and so this plan works good for me, and I figure I will just get a second $30/mo plan with another sim to stick into the USB modem that I will connect to the MBR1200B. I'm currently talking to Jonathan at Cradepoint to try and get an updated list of supported HSPA+ 42Mb adapters that work with the MBR1200B before making a final decision.

Does anyone know of some sort of USB modem or hotspot device that just uses a standard RJ45 Ethernet port? I could use my existing redundant router that way, since it already supports prioritization with ports and failover/failback modes. But I couldn't find any such device - they are all either WiFi or USB.

Are you sure? I thought you wanted to have your cable or DSL + a backup 4G connection? My understanding is the MBR95 is only a 4G hotspot creator, it doesn't support another WAN uplink or failover/failback modes?

The tech guys said it would. I honestly couldn't understand the description very well but I told him about what I typed in the first post and he said the 95 would work. Hopefully that is still true. The 95 does have a port for plugging in a connection and then 4 hard wires so not hot spot only.

On another note I was playing with my 4g card last night again, I guess there is a new tower working around here, 15-20 mps down and 10 up.

Have you considered Ting? A Sprint MVNO. Basically its $6/device then only pay for what you use. Check out their site for a calculator. I can understand some don't like Sprints coverage or don't have a Sprint phone (BYOD is being beta tested). But its very appealing to me since I really don't use mobile wireless services at all but still need a phone.

It is briefly mentioned at the very bottom: "When multiple Internet sources (4G/3G/Cable/DSL/Satellite modems) are connected to the MBR95, it will detect an Internet outage on the primary connection and switch to a secondary connection (aka: Failover / Failback)."

OpenWRT routers also provide a multiple internet source fail-over feature. I wouldn't doubt if these guys are using OpenWRT inside. But for the price either router is a pretty good deal. Just wish they had external antennas.

Price was good. I was reading from reviews on the 95 and the model this replaces had external antennas but the range on this was still better by 2X IIRC.

My 95 is ordered so hopefully by New Years I will have this installed and working.

I asked about MBR95 from the 3gstore website, the biggest reseller of Cradlepoint tech and got this:


Quoting 
In regards to the MBR95, it offers WiFi and 4 Ethernet LAN ports (as well as 1 WAN port). So, if failover/failback is your main priority you can accomplish that with either MBR95 or MBR1200B. The 1200B just has 1 more USB port than the MBR95, so if you're just using an Ethernet modem and a USB modem, the MBR95 should be enough. You can further compare the 2 routers here: Feature Comparison for Cradlepoint and Pepwave Routers

So I guess I was wrong. Looking forward to your feedback/review.
