Running multiple devices from a Pocket WiFi connection

I live in a rural area and the only internet connection I can get is mobile broadband.  I have a 3G Telstra Elite device which can run 7 devices.


 I have just purchased 10 Lifx globes (wifi light globes) which i need to connect to the wifi network.  What would be the best way to expand the number of devices i can run?  I have been wondering whether there is a router that I can plug the Sim Card into or some way i can connect the pocket wifi to a router then run all the devices through the router.


Anyway i am sure the Crowdsupport community will know how to do this. Feel fre to recommend specific routers as i ned to get this sorted as I am always running out of IP connections

Hi rexster,


Our Wi-Fi Advanced devices support up to 10 devices if that will suit your needs. Information about these devices can be found here:

You could connect your Lifx globes to a separate wireless access point,  and iPads, computers and phones to the main 3G unit?


You would need to create two separate wifi networks using two different channels.
