I think you're talking about a 3G modem ... because a mobile wifi router makes absolutely no sense.

AT&T and Verizon both have 3G modems of various sorts .. who is your mobile provider?

Most modern smartphones (read: not the iphone) can be tethered to a pc via usb or act as a wifi router and will broadcast their 3g internet to nearby devices. If you go this route, make sure your carrier is giving you enough bandwidth so you don't get surprised by a gargantuan bill. :D

The iPhone is perfectly capable of tethering .. it is your (American) carriers that disallow it. The rest of the world has been tethering their 3G iPhones for years.
