Zyxel intends to offer an alternative to MiFi by rolling out the MWR211 pocket 3G router which is actually a carrier-independent option which is capable of sharing its connection via 802.11n Wi-Fi. Another plus point of this device is that there is no cap for the maximum number of users, although it isn’t too smart to have too many people sharing the same 3G connection simultaneously (that’s logic speaking, of course). An Ethernet port is there just in case the place you’re at does not have wireless connectivity, and is capable of sending bandwidth alerts of its in order to warn users whenever they approach the set cap by carriers. No word on its battery life just yet, but if you’re interested, the Zyxel MWR211 router is out for $115 officially, although sniffing around some dealers might net you a $85 street price.
