Anyone who pays $80 a month for mobile broadband access and then has to pay for broadband at home because they have more than one computer that needs Internet access has wished that there was a router that would allow the sharing of broadband connectivity from a cellular router.
CradlePoint is making that wish come true with its new CTR500 Travel Router. This little router features a support for an external Wi-Fi antenna, uses WPA2 and other security methods and features VPN pass-through. The CTR500 is also compatible with some Express Card modems. The router can also be used as a failover system to change from a normal Internet connection to wireless in the event of a lost normal Internet connection.
