  1. Hello,

    I have a Telstra Elite Mobile WiFi device that I use for work. Currently I have four Laptop computers that connect through this device to the internet; however, I have another four devices that need to be able to connect to the internet and was wondering if there was anyway that I could connect a wireless router to the Telstra WiFi device to enable the extra devices to use the internet connection through the one mobile broadband device.

    the features make note
    which says it is acting like a router for itself. That allows you to attach a SWITCH
    to one port and add your extra devices to the switch.

    If you already have an extra router, connect a port from the Telstra Elite to a LAN port on the router (leave the WAN port empty).
    You will also need to disable the DHCP service in the second router.
