Netgear introduced its new DGN2200M wireless router today, and while I don’t normally spend a lot of time covering, or even thinking about wireless routers, this one has a unique feature that makes it pretty interesting. In addition to acting as an 802.11n WiFi router, this little box also works with an optional 3G or 4G wireless broadband dongle. So you can pack up your router and take it with you to use from the road. If your home broadband goes down, you can also use your mobile broadband dongle as a backup.

Oh yeah, the DGN2200M also packs a built in DSL modem.

The router will be available in April for $179.99. There’s also a cheaper version called the MBRN3000 which will go for $149.99. The difference is that it lacks the integrated DSL modem. For $129.99 the DGN2200 is a DSL modem/router, but lacks the mobile broadband option.
