Hi Liz,

I use a few Dovado Tiny routers to interface ethernet to USB 3G/4G dongles.

The Dovado does the login to the internet, has, a WiFi access point, a
ping watchdog to reboot the connection or the router if it falls over, can
e-mail you when the connection is reset or restarted and if your 3G/4G
service has amobile number attached to it, you can also query its status
or reboot it via SMS and setup a VPN. Heaps of features.

I get mine from Telco Antennas in VK4 -
Around $150.00.

According to the Dovado website your Huawei E220 modem will function in
the router.

Hope this helps.
