Hi—noob on this forum. We plan to buy the updated Surf Soho and plan to tether it via USB to a 6620L JetPack MiFi. I know no one has the new version, but my guess is the previous version whould use these same connections/firmware for this function. We currently have a VZW 5510L JetPack with a VZW 5gb plan and an ISP supplied USB551L USB Modem, plugged into a Cradlepoint MBR 95. We will cancel our ISP 20g/mo coverage and sign up to a VZW 24gb shared coverage–saving some $$.
So my questions:
- Do you experience noticeable better speeds USB tethered vs WiFi between the 2?
2, Does the Surf SOHO automatically charge the JetPack?
3, Any peculiar setup settings I need to do? The downloaded 6620L manual implies DNS, etc must be defined.
- Does VZW charge extra for USB tethering to a router?
- Would the setup be the same or similar as this link? http://www.evdoinfo.com/content/view/4384/63/
Thanks for any info,
