Author Topic: How to connect Obi devices to Overdrive Pro?  (Read 4981 times)

I want to buy an Obi to replace my home phone service. 

I'm using a Virgin Mobile Overdrive Pro 4G mobile hotspot for my internet connection.  I can connect my pc to it either thru a USB cable and over wifi. 

How would I connect the Obi100 to the Overdrive Pro?  The Obi100 has an ethernet port for the internet connection and the Overdrive Pro has USB.  Is there a USB to ethernet adapter cable that would do this?

I see other Obi models have a USB port.  For any of those models would I just be able to plug the Overdrive into that?

An OBiWiFi module plugged into an OBi200 or OBi202 would probably work. I don't know how the quality would be. I suspect that if you could minimize others using the connection during calls, it would be good.  A computer also using the connection might saturate the available bandwidth.

I don't think there is any way you will make direct USB work for your purpose, unless somebody makes a gadget that converts the VZ USB to Ethernet.
