What WiFi Router can I use with my USB Modem/Dongle to Access the Internet?

Hi!

 

Hope you can point me in the right direction…

 

I’m looking for a WiFi Router that I can directly connect my Verizon USB Modem (Pantech UML 290 - 4G LTE)
to provide Internet access to other devices accessing that WiFi Router.

 

I’m not asking you for any guaranteed advice; I just need some help in identifying a few WiFi Routers
that could ‘potentially’ do what I want, which is 100% incumbent on me to test & confirm.

 

I need a reasonably powerful WiFi Router so that people can access the Internet from different rooms in the house,
which eliminates using those ‘near vicinity’ hot-spot units.

 

I can’t seem to find the information I’m looking for;
and I’m worried that I could be searching for the wrong information.

 

If you could provide a few examples or any guidance, I’d genuinely appreciate it!

 

Thank you very much for your time & consideration!

 

Best Regards,

--Amadeo

 

P.S.  I’m well aware that I will not get the best throughput via the USB Modem (no streaming or heavy downloads needed);
I’m simply looking to avoid the need to get Internet Service via my cable company.

 

Again, thanks!

I don't think Netgear offers any routers in the U.S. that will work with USB modems.  They do have the MBRN3000, which you can get through Amazon, but one of the reviewers claims that it's wont work with a UML 290.  

 

I think Cradlepoint's MBR1200B might work with a USB modem.
