I live in a rural setting with very poor broadband speeds. For this reason I am using the Huawei B525 with iMac, iPad and iPhone. I get excellent speeds and good connectivity.
Yesterday I used it for a conference call and it worked very well. However we were advised to use an ethernet connection. This may be a very stupid question but would this apply to a 4g router? In other words is there any point in plugging in to the WAN? Or does that only apply to the usual type of wifi router that uses a BT connection rather than 4g?

If you're getting good speeds and connectivity over WiFi, I'd recommend continuing to use that. It's what 4G routers are designed to do.
You can use an ethernet cable to connect some 4G routers to other devices if you wanted to though.
Did they say why you were recommended to use ethernet? Is it possible that this was recommended for those who don't have a good connection?

Ethernet is far more reliable & consistent than WiFi. Use it where you can.
