Router instead to a EVB (Evaluation Board) for plugging in the 5G module RM520N-GL?

Can we use a router instead of an EVB (Evaluation Board) for plugging in the 5G module RM520N-GL and then connect to a 5G network using the same 5G module plugged into the router?
Or do we necessarily need the evaluation board (Quectel 5G M.2 Evaluation-Kit | Shop - Kits + Platforms | tekmodul ) for connecting to the 5G network?

We connected the router to the ethernet port and logged into the router using ssh. The router is running a Linux-based OS . We tried to install the required Linux drivers from Quectel but some errors popped up when running the .quectel-CM script
