Netgear Nighthawk WiFi hotspot question


Netgear Nighthawk WiFi hotspot question

I am looking for a simple and cheap solution for internet at my workshop.

I have no interest in purchasing a full on plan for internet there. I only work there one or two days a week, no neighbors to use their wireless. So what I am considering is using my phone as a hotspot, bridged (?) to something like the Nighthawk to get internet on my tablet or chromebook, maybe even my Roku... but probably not.

Is this possible?

I have read what I can, watched videos and no one seems to have a direct answer if I can do this.

Re: Netgear Nighthawk WiFi hotspot question

Which NightHawk device are you talking about?  I currently use a 5G hotspot device in my motorhome when away from the house.  It provides me with all the connectivity I need for my laptop and Roku streaming without any other device needed.  I use T-Mobile's prepaid data only plan since I only use it intermittently.  I don't want any reoccurring charges on the months I don't use the device.  How is the cell coverage in the office area?
