Re: Router that works with cable and Verizon MiFi

i have several deployed out in the field and only have USB modems connected to them, but there is a WAN port to support the setup you are looking for.

edit- i dont know if the mifi device is the same as a usb modem.

The MyFi is a Verizon hotspot that claims the capability to be tethered. It can be connected to a computer via usb.

I have read that it is possible to have a router set up to use my cable as its primary internet source and which would automatically fall back to the MyFi in the event that cable goes down. Having just experienced four days without internet as a result of Hurricane Sandy, having a backup internet source would seem to be prudent.

Thanks for your reply, I will investiget the router you mentioned.

if you know what type of modem/WAN card the mifi has, you can look here:
