It's expensive, but I am very pleased with it. It is dedicated to home use with my first Mobley's SIM card. I use one of its four LAN ports for our VOIP phone modem. It has many features, including carrier aggregation and band-lock, which lets you lock onto only the faster bands. With a USB hard drive attached, you have your own personal cloud storage, available to anyone on your network. It also doubled the download speed over that of the Mobley alone. It's been running solid for a few months without a hitch. I'm pleased enough with it that I'm going to order a second one to use with my second Mobley's SIM which is dedicated to traveling.

There are internet instructions on how to build a clone of the 4500 and save about $100, but the firmware would be an open source firmware. I decided I'd probably be better off sticking to the MOFI since I'm somewhat challenged in that area.

Ed have you ever had any issues using it with the mobley card. I moved mine to unit explore but had to do the unlock deal. Wondering if you can enter the unlock on the mofi device? I have a mofi that is connected via ubifi but that all came setup and i have used the bandlock but i am not seeing a place where they would have entered an unlock code?

Seems like you are somewhat fo a techie, found this info on the Netgear website. I just use auto but here is the AT&T band info: 4G LTE bands offered:1A Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 20, 29, 30, 46 and 66 then the 2A Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 14, 20, 29, 30, 46 and 66. 3g WCDMA Bands 1, 2, 5 and 8.

Just setup my first WZYE pan cam. It was really easy and has more and better functions that the others I have tested. Best part was the price. Thanks for the heads up. Now I need to get more...LOL.

I sent a reply earlier but I'm not seeing it, so here goes again. My first MOFI was used with a sim from a Mobley that did not receive the dreaded firmware update, so it worked perfectly by just plug and play. I bought a second MOFI (to use while traveling) that will use the sim from a Mobley that did receive the update. A quick try showed me it would not work plug-and-play and that's as far as I've gotten with it. I have not gotten the required PUK number so I can make that sim work. There is a setting in the MOFI's dashboard that will accept a sim pin number. I am not sure if the MOFI will ask for the PUK after wrong pin entries or not. If not, I may have to use a phone or other router to create a working sim pin, so that I can enter that number in the correct place in MOFI #2's dashboard. In the MOFI dashboard the entry for the sim number is under "Mofi Internal Modem" about half way down the page.

Yes hobbie and trade techie through and through

I was more wondering if you see those option in the gui(website) for the router. Unfortunately a lot of these devices you cannot really do anything with until you get them in hand. The unit explore looks like you would be able to control the bands from what i saw online but once in hand i realized it was not an option.

I have found very often in our travels that a specific band will be much fast then another almost always the routers select band 12/17 which seems to be busiest of all bands and often the strongest signal however often not very fast.

That is why i am asking specifically about the interface. The nighthawks are much less than the mofi devices as well

Ed i used the unite explore to reset the pin on mine.

I will say follow the online tutorial on rv internet site. I did it through the att chat window it took about an hour before i finally had the correct codes

I wondered the same thing if you can get past this on the mofi device without locking out the sim
