If you want something rock stable then i recommend the Cisco 88Xg series.
They are fixed interface devices with either xDSL/HSNS/Ethernet WAN ports
and inbuilt dual SIM 3G. They have dual antennas with N-Type connecters for
low loss external antennas if needed.
We have deployed these in the past for 3G failover on xDSL connections and
they have always been extremely reliable.

We have a bunch of regional sites (weather probes) that run some
equipment, 2 PCs and are connected to the internet.
At the moment it's dongle city which I would like to change over to
something a little better :)
I am looking for suggestions on a decent (business grade) router with 3G
capability an external antenna connection.
At each site, the equipment sits in a rack, inside a hut and signal
strength is reasonable (3/5).
My thinking is to deploy a basic Cisco router with a 3G WIC then an
external antenna on the same mast where we collect weather data.
Happy to hear suggestions and input.
