More specifically, they [Sprint] support the specified router.  This is
exactly the solution that I use for mobile WAP's as well as fixed wireless.
I have a guy in La Vernia that uses this setup for his house, as DSL is a
no-show, there is no cable, and his experience with the other fixed wireless
in the area was not great.  I added a booster antenna to help his
throughput.  Definitely get a EVDO revA, as the RTTx1 is not spectacular.


For those looking for different form factors or applications:
http://3gstore.com/ has a selection of EVDO routers and gear
http://www.stompboxnetworks.com/ demonstrates the manufacture of a custom
box using the Soekris platforms.
