Hi - does anyone know what (if any) evdo routers are available for the AC580 or AC595  in NZ at the moment?

Apparently the Linksys WRT54G3G utms one can be reflashed to a WRT54G3G-ST to support evdo instead, but I'd prefer a native evdo one.

Cheers,  Matt...

Nothing that will take a PC Card. We have an EVDO router from AxessTel (CDMA built-in) and we are working on the next version now.

WRT54G3G-ST unfortunately seems to be hard coded to Sprint or Verizon networks. I have a client that brought one into NZ and found that after much time and fussing they could not get the unit to accept the aircard 580 NZ version.

There is a D link model   - D-Link 3G Mobile Wireless Router but again seems to only accept US EVDO cards or atleast they are on the only ones listed on the site http://www.dlink.com/press/pr/?prid=313

Might work?

I beleive Telecom Store's retail a D-Link solution, but it's not exacly 'cheap' and usually is on a customer order basis only (expect to pay upfront).
