Hi all I’m looking to purchase one of the GL.iNet routers to use solely for USB tehthering and need some advice.
I currently have a Ubiquiti USG 3P gateway supplying internet to my network via a slow pppoe connection on WAN1. I want to utilise my unlimited tethering plan on my iPhone to feed WAN2 as a second high speed connection.
All I want is for the new router to pass the internet to the USG via a wired Ethernet connection and for the iPhone to be tethered via USB to the new router - I don’t want to connect via wifi to the iPhone, i want it USB tethered.
Can anyone recommend a good option for this which works out of the box with no flashing of firmware? Also can anyone advise who uses this if it’s reliable and does it auto connect when the iPhone is plugged in via USB or do you have to initiate the connection each time through the router web interface? Also will the tethered connection stay alive while the iPhone is tethered even if no internet is being used - I don’t want it continually disconnecting if you’re not actively using the connection all the time.
Thanks for any recommendations and advice.
