    I think you can get those Mini 3G/4G Portable Routers.
    I have this old one that looks like: https://www.amazon.com/Bestface-Wire...otspot-1800mAh
    It connected to the Mobley just like the ASUS (given 192.168.1.7) when switched to 3G client mode with APN "broadband".
    I set it up on a laptop with Ethernet, and I would just switch the cable to the ASUS.
    My ASUS has the T-Mobile software so I can't use the Duel WAN option, but I'll test it out once I figure out how to flash it.

    On another note, did anyone figured out how to setup the DMZ or some kind of port forwarding with the USB option?
    The ASUS can't figure out the true WAN IP, so the DDNS is broken.
    I tried the DMZ and Port Mapping in the Mobley Firewall settings with the IP 192.168.1.7, but it doesn't seem to do anything.
    The router IP range is 192.168.1.100 - 192.168.1.200 so the given IP is probably hardcoded for the USB port, and it seems to be isolated.

    I have the T-Mobile AC1900 also, flashed it to the AC68U. Cannot for the life of me get USB tethering to work from my S7 to the router. I've tried DD-WRT, Merlin, Base, Kong's thing, and Tomato. It just doesn't work. The Mobley works on and off.

    Shibby Tomamto supports mulitwan with all routers that you can install it on. I've never used more than two (or two usb at once), but you could configure it for four.

    I just bought a Mobley at Best Buy today for $99.99. The blue shirts tried to tell me I needed an unlimited data plus plan, but I had them go through the steps and showed them where the unlimited plan was at. Thanks for all the help in this forum. I know that they charged a $25 activation fee....those that got that waved, did you just chat with att on the website or call? And did you wait for your first bill before doing that?

    I waited for my first bill, but I was one of the early signups where you had to call in - it wasn't fully implemented in stores yet.

    They waived all activation fees on my accounts, but it took over a half hour on the phone to do it.

    Today, technically, you are supposed to buy the device at Best Buy, activate it online on the 3GB plan, and then call in to have it changed to unlimited. So technically, you were supposed to get hit with the $25 fee. Still, I'd wait for the first bill and call in and ask for a waiver, on the basis that you did BYOD (full retail) and the plan isn't available online (which is supposed to be how you activate fee free).

    Just completed my ASUS Mobley install...went without a hitch. Map: 120VAC to 12VDC Cigarette adapter (power), cigarette adapter (cut off barrel, has glowing on/off button for fast reboot), wired to female OBD2 connector (pigtail cut from common extension, giving a male and female pigtails), Mobley plugged in to OBD plug, common USB to MicroUSB plug into ASUS, running standard TMO firmware.

    Just recieved my Mobley, and got it working with the T-Mobile router. It was a somewhat arduous process, and through the course I found out that one of my MicroUSB cables did not want to play nice with the router. However, that has been since rectified.

    I found that I needed to play around with the DNS settings after a power cycle. I had to switch between automatic and google (8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4) in order to get it to connect to the Asus. However, once it did, I had high speed access throughout my whole house. Speeds aren't great, but they're as good as AT&T can be in my area. Well worth $20 a month.



    It's just a connection for me and my cats, so I'll live.

    Considering the interwebs were invented for cats, they will approve! Just sneak in a few pornos while they sleep!

    I use the USB up voltage wire to power it from USB2.0 port, just like the OP. I measured the pull seeing that the power draw is very low (1W to 4W).
    I have been using it exclusively now, cancelled my Comcast service, even after they kept offering me lower and lower monthly fee (lowest offer was $50 for Blast 200mpbs). I am only one user so 25-35mbps down is plenty, and the upload is the same 10mbps.

    As to my WAN IP issue, I found out that AT&T and Verizon don't provide a public IP to consumers, so I have to deal with a double NAT. A business account has the option to get a Dynamic Public IP for free, or a Static Public IP for $500 one time fee and $3/month. I found claims that the Static IP option was done for a costumer account, but that price is just way too much.
