The Peplink MAX BR1 Pro 5G receives wireless cellular signal and converts it to WiFi, creating a large WiFi “hotspot” in your home, business, RV, trailer, or boat. With the Peplink MAX BR1 Pro 5G, your computer, tablet, smart TV, and other WiFi devices can use your cellular data plan to access the internet.

WiFi WAN and Ethernet WAN allow the router to connect to another network—like an office or RV park’s WiFi network or a wired connection from cable, DSL, fiber, or satellite internet—and use its internet data instead of your cellular data plan.

SIM card required (important—please read)

To use the Peplink MAX BR1 Pro 5G as a cellular–WiFi router, you must have an activated nano-SIM card with a data plan. You can obtain a SIM card from your cellular carrier (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.) and add it as an additional line on your existing plan. You can also purchase SIM cards from many retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy; the data plan will either have a recurring monthly payment or will be a prepaid “pay-as-you-go” plan.
