I want to setup 3G HSDPA+ outdoor router, only job of this box would be to connect to 3G network. I was thinking of using RB411U for this, and load it with miniPci-x 3G card. Later the same HW would be used for LTE miniPCI-x card. Would RB411U be sufficient for this job? Or is better to go with RB411UAHR with faster processor and more RAM, and only disable build in WLAN?
I would then connect this box via ethernet to my home router.
I want to put it outside to get better signal reception, since NodeB station is a few hundred meters from my house, and its visible, but inside signal drops for 60%.
I can't find any 3G panel mount antennas with enclosure to mount RB411 inside same box as antenna, there are plenty for 2,4Ghz and 5Ghz bands, bot not 3G. If someone knows where to find it please let me know.
For 3G card I plan to use Sierra Wireless MC8705, but I'm also unable to find it for sale online? If somenone has a source for 3G minipci-x cards please let me know.
Thanks for the help.
