Use the Winegard Air360+ with something other than the GW-1000 router

Has anyone managed to use something other than the GW-1000 with a winegard air360+?

I was watching this video a few weeks ago when I was rethinking my internet situation.

You're welcome.

BTW, I ended up going with the GW-1000 and got a SIM card for an AT&T Tablet through the "bring your own tablet" web page AT&T has. Essentially added a line to my AT&T unlimited plan.

Working well so far. The GW-1000 recognized the SIM card right away. Bonus: Didn't even have to talk to anyone at AT&T to get up and running.

I decided to order the GW-1000 too. Got it yesterday. I live in Canada so internet plans are expensive. In the past I kept costs down while traveling in the USA by using a Straight Talk SIM while I was there. I don't know if that will work with the GW-1000.

May as well give that SIM card a try and see if it works, assuming it's not too much of an investment.

There are folks online that have stated any user-installed "AT&T" SIM card wouldn't work in the GW-1000, i.e., one is compelled to purchase the rather expensive Winegard data subscription for 4g connectivity using the AT&T SIM card that came pre-installed in the GW-1000. However, that didn't prove true with my setup (went with bring-your-own tablet plan as I noted earlier and used the SIM card AT&T mailed me).

The only downside on my setup is AT&T does appear to limit video streaming bandwidth to only allow ~480P resolution or thereabouts, even after I disabled Stream Saver in my AT&T profile for that line. Otherwise, the internet is awesome with great speeds. For only $23/mo additional on my unlimited family cell plan, providing what appears to be unlimited data in my RV so far (other than the video streaming limitations), that ain't too shabby.
