USB Modem on Lan Port

Hello and good health to everyone,

I have 5x Huawei USB LTE Modems (E8372).
Just bought a “Balance One Core” with all 5x ports activated as WAN.

Question: Is there a simple way to connect these modems to the WAN ports of the Router?
Maybe a special convertor/dongle/etc.

Hi! Welcome to the forum!
You’ll need a travel router that can accept a USB dongle as an internet connection and has an ethernet LAN.
Examples include the TP-Link TL-WR902AC, or GL.iNET GL-MT300N-V2 which is cheaper.

With all the power cables and dongles Its going to get messy and complicated to fault find - although I can’t immediately see any reason why it wouldn’t work.

What is your application / use case? There are Multi USB Pepwave routers you could consider depending on what you are looking to achieve.


Thanks a lot Martin for your comprehensive response.
You are right, there would be too many cables etc.
In my area, I only have LTE coverage and the average speed is not good.
That’s why I decided to go for with Peplink and to bond 6 LTE connections.

The absolute right device (size and features) is HD MAX 4 which is too expensive.
Max on the Go does not perform…however its desktop concept is very intriguing.
It would be a dream to have a similar device with the ability to insert 6 USB LTE Modems and with SpeedFusion throughput of at least 400Mbps…

I decided to go with 5x Standard Desktop LTE modems (already had them here and there but wanted to avoid them because of my desk space…)

Thanks again for your help.
