Maybe someone here can guide me in the right direction :)


I am looking for a 4G router to use in an area where there is no cable. I have a directional antenna Rantelon Nelli 0727 MIMO and I am gonna need a router for this antenna. And yes the area does not have a very good signal so I am gonna need this antenna to lock to a tower.

Can anyone recommend should I buy a router with a sim card slot or a home router that has more features and is more future proofed and use it with a USB modem?

Will using USB modem in any way make internet slower or less reliable?


For example I am considering ZyXel LTE3311 (with sim card slot) or Asus RT-AC68U (without sim card slot).

I am actually already using this Zyxel router, but it is a rental and I think I will change ISP and will return this router to them. New ISP is offering only Huawei B525 for their service and it does not have a possibility to lock 4G frequency's. I have had a lot of help getting better speeds from locking to a higher frequency even if its signal is weaker.


What I really need from a router is that I could use it for 4G, locking onto 4G frequencies, good wifi coverage (as our house is quite big) and maybe having configurable QoS would be nice to have. Also it needs to have connectors for directional antenna. 

I am not actually sure if this Asus router can lock on frequencies.  


I would appreciate any recommendations as I do not know much about routers.
