    Stable wifi device for remote cabin?

    I'm looking to eventually bring Internet access to a remote cabin, to control a wifi thermostat and possibly a remote camera.

    What device(s) would be the most stable for this use? This property is ~4 hours away so it would be a pain if it was prone to lockups. Are the recent Verizon Jetpack devices somewhat solid for long-term use or would I be better off going with the USB modem + Cradlepoint router of some sort?

    Old thread that got no response but I'm in the same situation. Looking for a couple 24/7 hotspots that don't need regular restarting. Using them for security cameras. They are just low res video clips 1-2 MB on motion, normally no triggers, so almost zero usage. I've tried two Jetpacks and they both worked great for a few weeks, then began shutting down randomly after 24-72 hours. Verizon says they aren't meant for continuous use. A Jetpack type solution would be great, since they're 10 bucks to add to my plan, and between the onboard battery and plugged into the usb charger port on a small ups keeps them powered up for extended time in a power failure.

    Anyone have a suggestion for hopefully an easy and stable solution?

    Mofi 4500 sim 4. Pricey, but seldom needs rebooted.
