LX40 4G Wi-Fi Vehicle Router (Single SIM, up to 10 clients)

Skip to: Buy Online


The LX40 vehicle-based 4G wireless router allows any Wi-Fi equipped laptop, tablet or mobile phone to access the internet from within - or nearby, with an appropriate antenna solution - the vehicle.  Up to 10 Wi-Fi devices can connect to the router at the same time, allowing several laptops or tablets to access the router’s internet connection simultaneously, using just one SIM card and therefore one mobile broadband contract. Devices on the Wi-Fi network can also communicate directly with each other, so that network tasks such as file sharing can be carried out.

The router includes an internal LTE 4G module supporting peak internet download speeds of up to 150 Mbps (although, as with all cellular devices, performance will be highly dependent on the vehicle’s location and the state of the local network infrastructure).  High speed internet access will be available whenever the vehicle is within a 4G or 3G area, as most of the UK is, but lower speed internet connectivity is still maintained outside 4G or 3G areas wherever there is a mobile phone signal on your chosen network.  

The router supports two external 4G antennas.  We stock a range of external antennas, from covert models mounted on the inside of the rear bumper to high-gain roof-mounted models for the ultimate performance.

The LX40 in-vehicle Wi-Fi router is a high quality and robust device that is designed specifically for use in vehicles, with E-mark certification, and automatic powering on and off with the vehicle ignition with optional shut-down delays.  The router includes built-in technology to maintain a persistent and reliable 4G internet connection wherever possible, and automatically connects to the internet as soon as it is powered on.  Once installed the router should never need to be physically accessed, and can therefore be installed in a covert location (e.g. behind a panel).

Designed for Vehicles

The LX40 is designed specifically for the vehicle environment, and has the following features as standard:


  • Ignition sensing - the LX40 turns on automatically with the vehicle ignition
  • Configurable shut-down delays – after the ignition is turned off the LX40 continues operating for a specified amount of time (configured in the router's control panel or via remote management). This prevents the router from powering down when the vehicle is not being used for short periods of time, e.g. at pick-ups and drop-offs.
  • Support for dual external cellular antennas (MIMO) for maximum performance
  • Wide input voltage range of 7-36V
  • Wide operating temperature range of -30 to +65 degrees C
  • E-mark certified – fully approved for permanent in-vehicle use
  • Integrated mounting holes for easy installation, plus a compact physical footprint

For further information about the differences between a  router like the LX40 and consumer-grade devices like cheap personal Wi-Fi hotspots (e.g. "MiFi" routers), USB dongles, or using a mobile phone or tablet’s built-in 3G or 4G modem, read this comparison.
