Share the web with CradlePoint’s CTR350 3G USB to WiFi router

CradlepointusbtravelrouterWe’ve seen 3G routers before, but most of ’em required you to put your PC Card modem into the router. What if, like many of our recent poll respondents, you prefer a USB cellular modem? How about folks that USB tether a 3g phone?

CradlePoint’s CTR350 Travel Router might work for you. Plug your USB modem into the router and you can broadcast that cellular Internet connection via 802.11b/g to everyone within range. For your closest friends, there’s even a wired RJ-45 Ethernet jack; they’d have to be a close friend OR just have a really long stretch of CAT-5 cable. The $149 CTR350 weighs only four ounces so it travels light and it does support various wireless encryption methods like 64/128 bit WEP, WPA/WPA2, and WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK. An added bonus for the tether-ers out there: the device plugs into an electrical outlet so it will charge your connected handset while using it as a modem.
