CES Got a 3G USB modem? Want to share the link? Netgear today launched a wireless router designed to tie an on-the-go Wi-Fi hotspot to the internet over an HSDPA back link.

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.
