Can I tether an Android phone to a Peplink router?

Yes you can.

You can share your Android smartphone’s Internet (cellular) connection with a Peplink Pepwave router using USB tethering (wired).

On your Android smartphone, head to Settings, then in the Wlreless & networks section > More, find Tethering & portable hotspot. Make sure your USB cable is connected from phone to router, then tap to activate USB tethering.

Watch 3Gstore demonstrate USB tethering:

Note: iPhone tethering is not supported at the moment due to lack of open APIs.
