    Yes, there are plenty of posts about this sort of thing. Search for "travel routers", "hotel internet", etc. Or just use a "normal" wireless router configured as an access point and plug it into the WAN port of your router.

    I'm not sure I follow Colin.If I set up a router as an AP and then connect it into the wan port of another router how can I access the 4g network from there or am I missing something?

    You said you wanted your router to access the internet over "WiFi". You said nothing about mobile phone networks.
