Homebrew Mobile Broadband Router

I recently moved house and could not get a decent mobile broadband signal, only one room in the house had a good signal. Obviously I know you can buy mobile routers, but why buy one when you can build one out of old bits.

I uses the following hardware for the project:

  • Sky Netgear DG834GT router, flashed with netgear firmware (used purely as an access point)
  • HP t5000 thin clent, running Windows XP Embedded
  • Huawei E169G modem
  • Network cable

This setup now gives me internet access anywhere in the house, I will add more details of the configuration when I get more time. Below are some pictures of the setup.




Originally I was using ICS (Internet connection sharing), to share the dialup connection, but have ditched this in favor of one of kerio's old offerings, I am now using Kerio Winroute Pro. This shares the dialup connection to the Lan and also handles DHCP, DNS plus I can now specify my own IP instead of using the default of 192,168.0.1 for the Lan.
