Netgear Nighthawk AC1750

Does anyone know if this unit would be compatible with the SIM card from the Mobley?

What does your question mean? Do you want to put the sim card into the router? Or are you asking if the Netgear router will work with the Mobley? If the latter, then I believe it will. I found this from the search. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f53/conn...-367877-4.html

There's no reason not to simply try it to see. AT&T hasn't been cracking down on using Mobley SIMs in other devices so there's probably no downside to trying it.

The ac1750 is a cable modem/router with a USB port for data sharing.
No slot to plug a sim into.

Look at post #2592. That's where I got the idea.

I believe this is what the poster from 2592 is refering to. Not a router. A mobile hot spot that is ATT compatible.

I would sure like to find someone that has actually used this one. I hate to order it and then have to return it!

I wouldn’t buy a nighthawk. I’ve had two in a year and I’ve only had problems. Connection and dropped signal. For the price you pay not worth the headache. We switched to the Netgear Orbi and I haven’t had any problems going on 2 years now but I don’t think they take SIM cards unless the new one does.

Would you mind going into a bit of detail on how you use the Orbi? I had an Orbi setup in my house a few years back. Do the newer ones allow for a sim to be inserted or something like that.

I think you must be referring to a NETGEAR Nighthawk® Mobile Hotspot Router (MR1100-100NAS). I have one in my shop and it has been working fine for a couple of years now. I thought about taking it on a few motorhome trips but I keep security cameras on the shop and that's what it runs through. I am not sure if anything other than AT&T sim cards will work but if you are wanting a 4G router this will work for you.

This is what you need for a Mobley sim card. I have used my Mobley sim in mine for over three years.

You need a mobile hot spot, not a router. That router will not take a SIM card, as it has no sim slot.

Thanks for straightening me out on this!

I'm hoping to find something less expensive than the MR1100!
