Router USB dongle Support

Hi there, how to know if a cisco router can use a USB dongle for internet connection, I didn’t find it written clearly in the data sheet.

Hi there,

I think nearly all USB devices which provide internet connectivity require drivers specific to the OS they are connected to. Combine this with the fact you cannot load modules/ drivers to an IOS/ IOS-XE/ etc device means this is not a supportable option.

 

Nice idea though! :)

 

cheers,

Seb.

Hello,

 

actually, think a lot of the RV routers do support dongles, such as the ones below. You need to search for the model and use they keywords 'USB Compatibility Matrix'.
