    Hi All,
    Just recently purchased MTS Blaze, now I"m looking for a router which will take the USB modem as input and provide Internet
    Thanks for any inputs you may have
    P.S.

    The MTS Blaze is a EVDO/CDMA device

    I've got ASUS RT-N16 through GEB and using Huawei K3765 with DD-WRT. I guess it will work with any Huawei based modems

    the new version of the ASUS RT-N13U will work just fine with a USB 3G modem.

    Thank you all very much for your suggestions, I'm thinking of going with Tenda, seems like a good one, regarding the ASUS RT-N13U, that's a nice router, but I have EVDO not 3G so skeptical about it, if anyone has any confirmations then that would be my first option

    If you are buying ASUS RT-N13U, then make sure that its Rev-B1 model, since other model will not support USB modems

    It supports the following modems

    You can also check the EDIMAX router, has 3 years warranty. Which is your modem model?

    Apologies for the late bump.

    I also want to set up Wi-Fi using the RJ45+USB Modem combination. I looked at the above threads and not really sure which model to take. Do all have the RJ45 input capability. I have the EpiValley SEC-8089 which this model shows compatibility with. Is this a decent buy for what all I want..?

    What else are good suggestions, also looked at EK Wireless compatibility list here, and their Hame, Dovado, and Cradlepoint series support the SEC-8089.

    Any other suggestions/insights would be great..want this set up early as possible....!

    ^^

    Sorry saw this late, since no one had replied. Picked up a Hame 432R from EkWireless (EBay). Serves my purpose just fine.
