This has been available locally for some time now and has been listed at Villman for a while. It’s basically a wifi router that also acts as a 3G modem (similar to the SmartBro Share It).

    Abe, doesn’t this just work with PCMCIA cards? Meaning the USB variety wont work?

  2. neis says:

    if it was a sim-slot router why not, but you need to connect a pcmcia 3g card… no way for the price :(

    i don’t think this is an alternative at all to the smart one.

  3. 8,000+ price for a 3G router is just too much for personal use but if you want to start a 3G routing business then it would be a good investment.

    hmmm, that’s look like my router… oh wait, DIR-300 pala ung sakin, no 3G for me :(

  6. Anne says:

    Ouch at the price. I think I’ll stick to good ol’ JoikuSpot.

    eto mas ok dovado router, mas mganda sa linksys and D-link…http://www.dovado.com

    wouldnt it be cheaper if you just buy a 2nd hand nokia series 60 phone with wifi(N95, e51,etc.) and use joiku spot program to act as a wifi router. This setup is better in cars and vans while in a road trip.

  9. Abu says:

    http://www.dovado.com- i checked this one out…Do you still need a laptop just to power this one? Is the setup for this is laptop + usb dovado modem= shared internet? Is it better than Nokia wifi phone + joiku spot program= standalone shared internet?

    This product is very expensive, very. You need to purchase a 3g modem for this, according to the docs.
    If this had a built in modem, I’d consider it OK. But it doesn’t come with one built in.

  12. What a relief to discover a page that may be ultimately really worth reading! I’ve been seeking all-around about this topic but men and women just put rubbish posts, or brief meaningless posts. I have seen a couple vids on youtube but it’s now the same as reading a good post. Great job!

    The price is unreasonable considering DLink isn’t a reliable wireless router…yes I have one and countless of times I want to axe it infront of its makers. Yes, I’m going to dump it real soon. I hope DLink closes its plants.
