My boss have asked me to help find a solution for networking in our warehouses. Since they are at a remote location, I need to find a solution that include a 3G router. The warehouses are not heated.

I think the easiest way is to find an outdoor 3G router which supports this.

Can anyone help me?

Ps: I have looked at this but doesn't know if the antenna is supported.

Unless your business is requiring a high-bandwidth connection, or many connected devices, you could devote a jailbroken iPhone with PDAnet installed.

I'm guessing that you probably can not use this method, or you won't jailbreak an iPhone, so... in that case, here is an outdoor 3G router that you may not have seen yet.

I would say that using a jailbroken iPhone / PDAnet for this would be a very strange choice because: A) you can buy 3G routers in the shops for less than the price of a second hand one B) it is not weatherproof C) You can't plug in an external aerial. –  James May 16 '13 at 15:17
    
I understand, that is why I added the other router in my answer. BTW, you can put the iPhone in a weatherproof container. If his need for a 3G router was just a temporary requirement (or he doesn't care about using conventional utilities such as an iPhone), he could definitely do this. –  HelpingHand May 16 '13 at 15:20

As a comment on this answer, note that you don't need to jailbreak an Android to get tethering. Some carriers try to lock it down, but there are apps that don't require root (for Android versions less than 4.2.1) that can do both wired and wireless tethering. Wired tethering is still possible without root on even the latest build of Android no matter how locked down it is. –  ÃŁŁǫǛȉЖΦΤїҪ May 16 '13 at 15:26
    
Yes. I guess that you can do this on Android as well, but, I don't have an Android so I am informing him of my method for doing this with an iPhone. –  HelpingHand May 16 '13 at 15:31
