Share Your Mobile WiFi without Contracts

At IFA, NETGEAR is introducing the AirCard® 785 4G LTE mobile hotspot (AC785-100EUS), the world’s first “unlocked” 4G LTE mobile hotspot with simultaneous dual-band WiFi coverage for greater range and performance. The AirCard 785 mobile hotspot with 4G LTE is ideal for parents, students, travelers, renters, telecommuters, small business entrepreneurs, temporary work sites, and seasonal and mobile homes where access to fixed broadband infrastructure may be limited. Up to 15 laptops, tablets, smartphones, digital cameras, gaming consoles, or other WiFi-enabled devices can easily and securely connect on-the-go to the built-in 802.11b/g/n wireless access point and share a single mobile broadband connection. With the AirCard 785, you’re free to choose almost any service provider in Europe and parts of Asia and to change providers at will, without committing to a long-term service contract. The AirCard 785 will become available throughout Europe in October at an MSRP of €149.99 (EUR) and £119.99 (GBP).

An accessory for the AirCard 785, the new 4G LTE Boosting Cradle with Ethernet (DC113A) enables you to use the AirCard 785 as a standalone WiFi router and primary Internet connection for the devices in your home. Its Gigabit Ethernet port provides Internet connectivity from your mobile hotspot to your desktop computer, laptop, printer, media server, network attached storage (NAS), or any other Ethernet-enabled device. You can even connect the cradle to a WiFi home router via the Ethernet port if you want to leverage your hotspot’s mobile broadband connection for Internet access, but still need capabilities and features from a higher performance router. The cradle has 2 built-in MIMO antennas and two connectors for external antennas. The 4G LTE Boosting Cradle with Ethernet will become available throughout Europe in November at an MSRP of €49.99 (EUR) and £39.99 (GBP).
