I use the MiFi in the office for laptop internet use since our network doesn't have a wireless router. However, this prevents me from seeing the office network, shared servers, etc when I need them.
I'm thinking about reverse tethering the MiFi.
What I mean by that is, using the USB on the MiFi, connect it to my network so I can use it's 4G LTE connection, and at the same time use it as a wireless router for the network.
A more obvious solution would be to get a wireless router, but I'm wondering if there's a way to work around that. Plus (because of our area) we get about 1 Mb download through our ISP, while the MiFi get's 30+. If I could turn it into a router and make use of its download speed there would be a major advantage there over getting a wireless router.
To clarify, I'm trying to do two things with the device:
- Use it's 4G LTE data connection to provide internet to my hard line office network.
- Use it's wifi capabilities to provide wireless access to said network (not the MiFi's network), aka act as a wireless router.
