Data sim to be used in a modem

Answered
Hi, I have a mobile sim card (data only) and I use it in a dongle however I need to be able to put the sim into some kind of fixed modem where I can plug in Google wifi and printer etc using Lan cable connectors. Are there any modems that I can use for this purpose for my sim card?
Thanks

Re: Data sim to be used in a modem

There are several modems you can use it depends on how much money you want to spend. There is the D Link DWR-921 which has support for all the 3G and 4G frequency bands used by Telstra and other Cellular networks.

If buying a modem to use with Telstra network make sure it supports 3G 2100 MHz (B1) 850 MHz (B5) and 4G 700 (B28). The site below gives more information on the radio frequencies used in Australia.
