Netgear's Mobile Broadband Router: turn your HSDPA dongle into a hotspot

The 3G Mobile Broadband Router has a USB port on the back for the modem. In addition to the 802.11g Wi-Fi network, the router also provides a quartet of 10/100Mb/s Ethernet ports for wired devices.

The low-spec network portage marks this gadget out as a device to take on your travels rather than install at home, though that's possible too.
