Connecting Mobley to Linksys EA3500


Recommended Posts

It doesn't look like it.  The Mobley can connect to some devices via USB cable and others via "Wifi as WAN", for routers that support that.  The Linksys only connects via an Ethernet cable.

OK. Worth a try for the  price. It does have a USB port for what it is worth. Thanks

They buried the USB port on their website.  You can see if it will work using a microUSB to USB cable.   This might help - https://community.linksys.com/t5/Wireless-Routers/USB-mobile-hotspot-through-PC-to-LinkSys-router-for-home-network/td-p/1105273   .

You could use one of these Nanostation Loco to wirelessly connect to the Mobley and plug the Loco's Ethernet into one of your linksys LAN ports sharing the internet connection. 

That way you configure all your devices to point at the linksys SSID and password and can share the Mobley's internet connection to as many devices as you want.  Directly connecting to the mobley only allows 5 connections.

At least the Loco is sub $50!   A decent AC router is normally quite a bit more than that.  -Bill

The Linksys is $59 on Amazon and the OP got it for free.  Why would an RVer need a fancy router?  You can get a $21 travel router on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DBS5Z0W/ )that can reach an entire campsite that works with the Mobley..

I have a travel router but it keeps dropping out. It is next to the Mobley so distance isn't a problem. I have give u p on the E3500 idea, just live with the dropping out. Mine is yellow I don't know if that is any different than the blue.

"Mine is yellow I don't know if that is any different than the blue"  They quit making the yellow one, so I posted the link to the blue one.  I also have the yellow one.
