If you're asking about using a router to connect to your phone's hotspot, yes, you can do that. Some routers have the ability to connect to a WiFi network as the WAN circuit. An example of a router like this are the ones from Cradlepoint.

But I've attached more than one device to a phone's hotspot before. So you shouldn't need a router.

Also, I'm not sure what you mean by free. Keep in mind all cell providers that I'm aware of (at least in the US), have a limit on data usage of devices attached to a phone's hot spot.

Yes i agree with zx10guy. you must need a router, which supports mobile hotspot function.

If you agree why do you contradict him when he says, "you shouldn't need a router"? If you are going to post please try to find something helpful to say.
