The Pepwave Surf On-The-Go 3G/4G Router w/ WiFi as WAN V2.0 worked very well right out of the box. Setup and instructions were easy and clear. We have a vacation home which will become our retirement home (full time) in a couple years when we'll get broadband service for internet/TV/VoIP, but until then need to have internet access on iPads, notebooks and netbooks via an alternate method. For ten days we accessed the internet on two iPads and a notebook using the Pepwave router and a Verizon USB 3G modem (UMW190) with no problem. In fact, when I've previously used the modem exclusively with a notebook using the VZAccess software interface the connection has dropped at least once a day (not sure if it somehow is programmed to disconnect after 24 hours or why that happens when you fire it up through the Verizon software app which isn't required by this router), but the modem never dropped the connection or required restarting once during the entire ten days. Didn't have to p oke it back to life. :-) I purchased this router to replace an older Kyocera full size/non-travel router that worked with an older Verizon 3G modem but not the one I have now (the old router was able to be used with a USB modem, an express card or an aircard which was my original modem; that made it appealing five years ago - but not now that it doesn't work with the modem I have). Also the Pepwave is small and takes up little space, and we had no trouble with the signal from anywhere in our three story townhouse or on the outside decks by placing it centrally on the kitchen counter on the middle floor. Good purchase and worth the fair price!
