I am having a little trouble wrapping my head around how to use an iPhone for an Internet connection through my Peplink Balance 20 router. Yes, I understand that tethering is not possible with Apple, but I am reading snippets of using a separate directly wired WiFi device that connects to the iPhone via the hotspot feature or possibly Peplink’s Surf-On-The-Go device. Can someone explain this further to me or even provide a diagram?
Alternatively, if I upgrade to the Balance 30 LTE unit, could I take the SIM card out of my iPad and use it in the Peplink device? $20 extra a month for emergency Internet at a decent speed is allot cheaper than any other ISP option.
