Hi, i brought a Sony Xperia Z1 and since internet in my area is extremely slow i have to use my hotspot on it. I have an unlimited 4G hotspot so the speeds are there. However it can be problematic when trying to use it with my xbox. Is there a way in which i can purchase a wirless router however instead of hooking it up to the phone lines, link it to the hotspot? then i'd be able to also extend its range and have a more reliable connection.
Thanks

Most routers (that I've seen) have a specific WAN link.
I think the way you might want to do this is with Internet Connection Sharing through a PC. Use a good wireless card in the PC to connect to your hotspot. Used a wired connection from the motherboard's Ethernet port to your router, and attach other PCs (or your Xbox) to that. The downside is you'll need to leave the PC turned on all the time, but I believe this will work.
