Can a Nighthawk X6S (R7900P) tether to a jetpack via usb?

Hello all.

I would like to tether a Verizon Jetpack (7730L) to the Nighthawk X6S (R7900P) for LTE internet access. Can this be done? If so, how?  If not, is there anything available (via Verizon) that can allow the X6S to connect to LTE?

 

Thanks for your help

The only thing that connects to a router via USB is storage. Even then, there are some devices that won't work.

 

As for the rest, I have no idea what a  Verizon Jetpack (7730L) does.

Just another user.

OK Thanks for the info. In regards to the USB port, that is what I was afraid of. That particular jetpack has only a USB out.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations on something I can use to connect to Verizon LTE as the internet source. I found the Netgear LB2120 but it appears to only work on AT&T. This little guy would work well for my application if it were Verizon.
