a peer to peer network and Mobile Wifi possible

By wensystem3 ·
My brother has a business in the rural areas with no phone line.. He uses Mobile and EE (UK) mobile 4G Broadbrand of a dongle to USB.

It works.

He wants to use his NAS from home and link two laptops. We have a switched hub but nothing to generate dynamically an IP address to the three devices. I don't think the EE box does this as a normal router would. How to connects the three devices and use the mobile wifi broadband.

It is out of my league unfortunately.

ps.. as an experiment :) I tried on my own system to use a router with Wifi disabled and not connected to the phone line for BB and it did generate an IP for the NAS and my pc . However when i used my USB wifi adapter (I have used well in the past) for home wfif on the PC it connects to the home router but no internet) As i have said .. out of my knowledge/league. Any pointers please apart from.. get a phoneline/BB put in with a router

Wrong equipment

You're simply working with the wrong equipment. The best solution would be to get an LTE device that supports DHCP.

Another option you have is to use use the USB dongle to provide internet to one computer and then share that internet connection out of the ethernet port with Windows ISP. You can then run that ethernet cable to a router and get IPs that way.

But like I said, it would be much easier and simpler to just purchase a supported LTE device that handles DHCP.
