I'm looking for a combination 4G booster and router. I can find 4G routers, and 4G boosters, but I haven't run across a combination of the two yet, does such a beast even exist? Here's the application, I want to install something in my car that can not only use an external high gain antenna for 4G, but also create a wireless network within the vehicle. I know a 4G router could work and I just use WiFi on my phone, but I also want to make this seamless for anyone connecting as well as not needing two devices with two antennas. I know in the latter case, two transmitting antennas close to each other may have issues with each other. Am I making sense? I not only do a lot of mobile computing, but I also go a lot of places with weak cell signals. With the tiny compromise antennas in phones, I have no doubt I'd be able to have signal in places where I currently don't.


Thank you.

Wouldn't one of these options work? I'm specifically thinking of the Netgear Nighthawk mentioned at the end of the article.
