We bought the Cradlepoint CTR500 router below and just love it with our ATT data card. Highly recommended if you and the DW or DH fight over the data card or you want to look up campgrounds as you drive down the road. We are really pleased with it and I love to take the cat, a glass of wine and the laptop and sit outside the coach on warm afternoons, while I check email and the net.


CTR500 Cellular Travel Router
http://www.cradlepoint.com/ctr500/ctr500.php


Portable and Compact
The CradlePoint CTR500 Cellular Travel Router creates a secure Wi-Fi Hotspot from broadband enabled cellular data modems. The CTR500 is the world's most compact router that is able to support BOTH Express Card and USB-style Cellular Modems. Powered by CradlePoint's WiPipe™ technology, it supports a wide variety of modems and handsets on the ATT, Verizon, Sprint, and Alltel networks and gives users hassle-free Wi-Fi access nearly anywhere.
Secure and Reliable
The high-performance router platform supports multiple and concurrent VPN pass-through sessions, plus encryption modes including WPA2 Personal and Enterprise to provide secure client access. Unique built-in auto-failover between broadband sources enables wireless backup applications and maximum uptime.
Simple
CradlePoint's built-in Setup Wizard provides diskless set up of security settings - getting a remote workgroup up and running quickly regardless of OS or device-type on the network. For site selection and placement convenience, the CTR500 also includes a signal strength mode, which enables external LED indication of cellular signal strength.

I agree Luke. I have a Kyocera wireless router and the DW and I love it. Since we each have our own laptop to do our own business, it works out great. I love technology.........
