Hi all, I have a telecom t stick MF 180 and want some kind of a device that changes that t stick into a wireless wifi around my home, the t stick is a usb connection but we would like to have 2 or 3 users on that connection, I think I need some kind of a wireless 3g router but not sure what. please help thanks.

You cau se a Cradlepoint PHS300 (not sure these are available in New Zealand yet). Alternatively there are some routers that allow USB modems to be used - I have a Cisco SRP 521W (cable modem version). The Cisco SRP 527 is the DSL version.

There are other devices similar to the Cradlepoint around. Or you can get one of these (not USB but pure 3G WiFi routers):

Hi there thanks for that I was wondering if these (links below) do the same job, I have checked the compatibility and that is okay but do they do the same job? or do what I am trying to do? thanks

They both seem to be much cheaper options and are compatible and seem to do the same thing? but Im not sure.

I have the Netcomm 3G18Wn and it works a charm. Easy to set up and runs well with the XT stick I have. Works well with several users on summer evenings, or rainy days, at the bach.

The only problem would be if you buy one of those and it doesn't support the specific USB modem you have. I have the Sierra Wireless modem and it works fine with the devices I tested. I don't know about the MF.

Netcomm have quite a few models available http://www.netcomm.co.nz/3g

The ZTE usb sticks are well supported, we use a bunch of MF626's in Netcomm routers.
