Default Use Tethering as Lan Modem Connection?

I am trying to use my not just a hot spot tethering location, but as the internet access portal for my wireless lan. This way I can use multiple devices and not have to manually connect and reconnect to the phone for tethering. From the reading I've done, the best way is to connect the phone to the router through USB and set up USB tethering on the phone. Am I on the right path? Has anyone else done this? What kind of router do I need to pull this off?

TIA
