Junxion_boxThe New York Times has an article about using a Junxion Box with a Verizon EVDO modem card to share the high-speed wireless connection over WiFi.  The Junxion Box is a simple and driver-free way to plug the modem card in, connect to Verizon’s BroadbandAccess network, and then share it via the integrated WiFi generated hotspot.  Needless to say Verizon is not very happy about this but time will tell if there is anything they are going to do about it.  The Junxion Box is being used in Willie Nelson’s tour bus and has also been spotted on Google’s employee buses.

The Junxion Box firmware currently supports the following carrier networks and PC Card modems:

Alltel
- Kyocera KPC-650 (1xEV-DO/1xRTT)
