Cisco 1841 Router

Yesterday, 2 Cisco 1841 Routers just arrived to my office. For the first time, I don't see any differences with the other Cisco Routers.
It has 2 Integrated 10/100 Fast Ethernet ports and 2 WAN Interface Card slots.
Then I look back to the box. Hey! There are additional interface cards plus antennas and those things are for the WAN slots.

They are Cisco 3G Wireless WAN High-Speed WAN Interface Card and Cisco HWIC-AP WLAN Module.

The 3G over wireless provides broadband connectivity over the cellular networks.3G Wireless WAN HWICs is the first enterprise class 3G WAN solution. The 3G Wireless WAN HWICs support the following 3G and 2.5G technologies:
  • HWIC-3G-CDMA supports 1xEV-DO Rev A, 1x EV-DO Rev 0, and 1xRTT Up to 3.2Mbps
  • HWIC-3G-GSM supports HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE, and GPRS Up to 3.6Mbps
Then I grab a console cable and connect it to my laptop and here are the outputs

Ok, I can try NTS connection using this router to connect to the Internet since NTS already supports 3G. But I don't know whether Lippotel/NTS already covered my area besides my pearl is out of battery and I don't bring my charger. Hmmm, maybe I'll try it on Monday. :D
