MiFi Router Used for Backup Broadband

We have had recent problems with our cable broadband circuit.  Was looking for a solution in which we could use a cellular (MiFi) hotspot with routing capabilities to run our network during outages.  I know most limit the number of connections to five.
Are there devices on the market which would allow a LAN connection to our firewall?

Most appear to have USB connections.  Would another option be to tether the hotspot to a Win 7 computer and run ICS?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Take a look at Meraki MX60 or MX64 routers they do exactly what you require.

They have a usb port and will use 3G 4G devices as a backup for WAN

Great product
