Using MikroTik LGH for internet

Hi all, First post on the forum but looking for advice.
We are moving to an area with terrible wired broadband service, and the lines themselves are very damaged so in wind or rain the current occupiers have issues with connection.
I've decided to go down the Mobile Broadband route as there is plenty of 4G coverage.
I'm looking at the mikrotik LHG. After a bit of reading it seems this is a antenna and modem package and has 2 ethernet connections one is POE and the other is the ethernet connection to whatever you want. I currently have one of the Asus Nighthawk range of routers and wondered if I can plug the ethernet from the Mikrotik LHG into the WAN port on the back and use the router for both its ethernet ports (PC and TV) and the wireless for phones and tablets etc.
Is this possible? or do I need a specific router?
Also any reviews on the Mikrotik would be great as well.

Thanks for reading

Hi,

No reason you should not be able to do this.

Re buying, Can you share your plans on operator and approx location ? The mikrotiks don't support band 32 which is potentially important for Three and Vodafone.

Hi Lucian, thanks for the reply.
I'm near Sevenoaks in Kent. I have 2 options with the provider, I can use 02 who I'm with on my company phone and has great signal there, or Three also has good signal. Any other companies get limited coverage it seems

Have you tried running any speed tests on the O2 phone to check it will be suitable for broadband and buy8ng a Three PAYG sim and testing data network would be recommended… three’s mobile broadband offering is far superior if the network isn’t too contended.

Mikrotik LGH (WIFI kit) in post title and Mikrotik LHG (LTE) in your text. Don't want you to order incorrectly.

Look also at the SXT. I have one in the loft, the older CAT 4 version, and a colleague has the later CAT 6.

Same as aesmith, I have an SXT in the loft pointing out through a slate roof. It's been rock solid for nearly 2 years. The setup could be a little daunting as it's got a load of configuration stuff available in the config software.. But you really don't need to get bogged down in all of that, a basic working setup is pretty straight forward there's good guides available and the forum is usually very helpful. People online moan that the network ports aren't the fastest but on a rural 4g device I doubt its going to be your limiting factor
