Do I need to purchase 4G?

Post by dal » Mon Dec 11, 2017 4:00 pm

When looking at the order form, I only see an option for buying the Comms Edition with the 4G dongle. I plan on using my existing 4G wireless router, which has it's own 4G antenna etc and then connecting the Comms Edition via wireless, so I do not need the 4G dongle.

Will that work as I outlined, and can I purchase it without the 4G dongle?

Hi,

There is no reason why what you suggest would not work. The inbuilt wireless on the Raspberry is used for the local network, so a separate wireless receiver would be required to connect to your existing setup. This would obviously reduce the price on the comms. edition.

We are, of course, happy to supply with wireless only - please use the contact form for a bespoke system and a new (reduced) price.

Regards,

Colin
