RJ45 is an Ethernet connector - Standard cat5 cable.

 

The 3g USB modem is just that. It allows you to connect to the 3g network (used by phones) to connect straight to the internet. You can plug the USB dongle straight into your pc or laptop and , providing you can get a mobile phone signal and you are in a 3g area you should be able to get online - You do not need the Linksys for this. The dongle and the router are not compatible. Your Linksys is just a router and not a modem.

 

What you really need is something like this:

 

Linksys Router & Modem

 

 

Do not worry about network topology!!

 

We really need more info to give a full answer though:

 

  • What are you trying to connect to the internet - Laptop / PC?
  • Do you have a internet service provider (ISP)? - I don't believe GSM are in this case - They have provided a 3g dongle, not an internet service.

You need a router that is compatible with 3G networks.

The Linksys router your post links to shows no compatibility with 3G anywhere in the specs

You might need to take that router back to where you got it and find a router that has 3G compatibility

 

 

 

Edit: you should be able to use an intranet connection without having to use internet with the linksys router, if the cctv is wireless. Do you have any specs on the cctv system?

you can probably connect to the cctv if that's wireless, using an intranet connection (not internet) with the WRT120. You will need to look at the specs of the cctv. Can you tell us what model the cctv is? You need to know what transmitter the cctv is using to connect to it.

 

I do not know how you can get internet with a router without a compatible 3G router

I agree with Joe - I canrt see how youre going to connect without a 3G compatible router.

 

I use this router http://au.billion.com/product/voip/bipac7404vgpx.php which I bought specifically for use with a 3G USB modem.

 

I actually abandoned the 3G network in favour of ADSL 2+ because the reception was so pathetic but I still use the router for VOIP calls. It is an excellent router and easy to set up.
