Mobile Broadband - Anywhere, Anytime Internet Access
Mobile broadband allows users to access the Internet anywhere, anytime without having to depend on Wi-Fi hotspots in coffee shops, airports, other public areas or the expensive tariff rates of hotel Internet service providers.
Zoom 3G Travel Router - What it Does:
Zoom’s portable 3G Travel Router creates a Wi-Fi Network when connected to your 3G USB modem; this allows you to share your mobile broadband Internet access between multiple Wi-Fi devices or people.
Wireless Internet from Your Mobile Broadband USB Modem
This impressive little device allows the user to create their own Wi-Fi hotspot absolutely anywhere using their 3G mobile broadband USB modem.
Wi-Fi Anywhere, Anytime
With the Zoom 4506 3G Travel Router, your computers, iPad Wi-Fi, mobile phones, games consoles, iPods or MP3/4 players... in fact any Wi-Fi enabled device can share your 3G Internet connection through high-speed Wireless-N. The Zoom 4506 3G Travel Router works anywhere you can receive a 3G signal – in a car, at home, at work, outdoors, at the airport, in a hotel, at a trade show - anywhere!
Wi-Fi in Seconds
Simply plug your USB Modem into the Zoom 4506 3G Travel Router, and then any Wi-Fi devices you choose can have fast, easy Internet access. Use it for just yourself, or share it with family members, friends, or business associates. The Travel Router can expand the range and enhance the data rate of your mobile broadband connections. Place the Zoom 3G Travel Router (With your 3G USB Modem connected) where the 3G signal strength is high. Then the Travel Router will complete the local connection to your devices with a robust Wireless-N signal.
The 3G Router is pocket-sized to enable the user to take it anywhere. It measures just 3.0 x 4.2 x 0.87 inches (7.6 x 10.5 x 2.18 cm), and is light at just 5 ounces (141.75g) including the battery.
Power & Flexibility
This travel router works anywhere your mobile broadband modem works, and what’s best is that you don't even need a power outlet! The Travel Router works for up to 7* hours on its built-in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. It also works and recharges when its small power adapter is plugged into a mains power outlet, or using the ‘In Car Charger’ (Sold separately – Model 4511-00-00F), meaning that you also can use the car, caravan or camper van power outlet to create your own Internet network anywhere you travel.
Easy Setup (Includes Multi-Language Wizard)
A true ‘Plug & Play’ device with Wireless available within seconds of connecting your 3G USB modem. For setting up wireless security (Which is recommended) Zoom provide multi-language setup wizard which is included in the installation CD.
Hardware WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) and Wireless On/Off Button
The One-Click WPS button lets you activate the wireless protection, and setup a secure wireless network in a snap. Zoom 3G Routers feature a control button on their side panels to enable the easy switching on and off of the Wi-Fi wireless connection. When you want to use only a wired connection, you can simply pause the Wi-Fi option by pressing the button without making any extra settings.
Networking With The Travel Router
The Zoom 4506 3G Travel Router has Wireless-N capability, so it's not only compatible with Wireless N devices but also with b and g. The router supports all the popular wireless security modes, including WEP, WPA, WPA2, and WPS, so it's easy for you to control who has access to your Travel Router. It also features SPI firewall, VPN Pass-through, remote management, Universal Plug and Play, and other advanced router functions for up to 253 Wi-Fi connections.
It also supports a wide range of connection approaches to your Internet Service Provider, including static IP, dynamic IP (DHCP client), PPTP, L2TP, PPPoE, and 3G.
When travelling, you can connect to the router through its wireless-N capability or through the Ethernet port using a Cat5e cable (included).
Automatic Back Up For Fixed Internet Services
Some users may wish to use the Model 4506 Travel Router as an automatic back up to fixed services when at home or in the office. This can be done easily by simply connecting the Zoom 4506 3G Travel Router into the Ethernet port of an existing ADSL or Cable modem for an instant mobile broadband backup to your wired Internet connection. To set up the 3G fail-over go to the ‘basic setup’ web page and follow the instructions.

My kids have iPod Touches, my wife has her laptop and I have my iPad. How can we all get access to the Internet, at home, on holiday, in the car, at the airport etc?
Easy, you just need to create your own WiFi hotspot using this neat little mains/battery powered travel router.
Step 1 - Get this travel router and configure it with WPA security - this will keep you safe and stop others from hijacking the wireless connection (unless they know your password). This is easy to do using the admin software provided and there are full instructions on the CD provided.
Step 2 - Next you need a suitable USB modem that will work in your desired locations (using a locally sourced SIM card of course, to avoid huge roaming charges).
There are a number of options here:
Option 1: Buy the sibling product - the Zoom USB 3G Modem which is fully unlocked and will take any SIM card from any network - definately the most hassle free solution
Option 2: If you have an existing USB modem locked to a UK network provider you could try and unlock it (a quick google on modem model number and you will be on the right track)
Option 3: Buy a USB modem in the country in which you are travelling to ( but remember unless you unlock it, it wont work when you get back home) - it will probably come with a pre-charged SIM card with say 1GB data. In Portugal, this cost around 40 euros.
Important - before buying a local USB modem remember to first check the compatibilty list on the Zoom Website - most mainstream modems are supported
Step 3 - Plug in the USB Modem with a locally source SIM data card and switch on. In the majority of circumstances it should simply work.Read more ›
1- my office is a steel-framed building so phone signal is very poor (no 3G inside the building)
2- I do a bit of Forex Trading, and can't get to the web site on the office network (it's classified as gambling)
3- my laptop is so old its USB ports are getting creaky - they have stopped recognising USB 3G modems
4- when we go caravanning, there are 3 of us on laptops all fighting for the 3G dongle
5- at peak times the home broadband slows to a crawl (3 laptops again), and 3G could help us out
I was truly amazed - it's absolutely brilliant!
Firstly it installed without any complaint. 60 seconds to mobile broadband is about right (it even arrives with a fully charged battery though i ran it plugged into the mains the first time i used it). You simply set security with the supplied short ethernet cable, connect over wireless, and Bob's your uncle. It has accepted two random dongles with no complaints (in fact no comment at all - no setup required) and just got on with the job
I can put it on the windowsill outside the office and it picks up a full signal, but i can stay sat at my desk. Job done.
I bought another 3G dongle so I have Voda and T-Mobile. That seems to cover everywhere it's possible to cover. The router isn't "chatty" so it doesn't use up all your PAYG
I can carry on using an ageing laptop because it doesn't matter that the USB ports don't work any more
I've had it for a couple of weeks now. It's small - very small - and very neat. I constructed a power cable that plugs into a USB port to charge it at lunchtime, which is about the only thing missing.
Get one - at this price you won't regret it!Read more ›
Wired connection via Ethernet to Zoom box was ok and managed to get onto internet even though signal mobile signal was weak. Was also able to monitor connection via Zoom's web interface which was ok.
Unplug 3G dongle and wireless connection was strong and Zoom responsive whilst navigating though configuration settings.
with wifi setup, plugged in the 3g dongle, Zoom box could not cope with wifi and weak 3G simultaneously. Suspected it was dropping the wifi signal strength but that was not the issue as used separate wifi analyzer to monitor signals. Could not even connect to configuration settings unless I either unplugged the 3g or used Ethernet to bypass wifi. also tested with multiple pc's to eliminate extra variables
Unlikely that this was a fault specific to my unit, probably a design fault for that specific scenario:
- MF112 dongle in weak signal area
- connecting via wifi
Returned product. Ran similar tests with Three's Mifi had no such issues, (but bear in mind that the mifi is not a complete router)
I had to upgrade the firmware to recognise my old Orange Option ICON 2 dongle. I also entered the Orange APN into the settings screen, changed the admin password and set up a wireless key. Having done that it recognised the dongle and connected straight away.
For the price, functionality and the range of dongles that it recognises I cannot fault this little box - highly recommended!
