Excerpt: We save a lot because instead of paying for three users, the wi-fi allows us to surf simultaneously. It did have some initial compatibility issues but this was resolved by my brother by installing a firmware. The bonus is that it can be used for network printing with the proper USB printer. It will save us the trouble of hooking up additional wires as there are already so many wires in the house.
Summary: I brought this a few weeks ago because the last one i bought refused to work with my dongle. It takes a while to set up when your using a dongle because you have to set up the dongle to play through the router which is a bit of trial and error but i eventually got it working after that it was pritty straight forward just follow the disc instruction that comes with the router and you should be in buisness.
Edimax 6200n 3G router - excellent, after some support...
4 January 2011
Summary: I bought this unit so that I could share a 3G connection with friends when we were staying at our beach house, which does not have a phone line. I bought a Sierra Wireless 3G USB 308 stick, BUT DID NOT CHECK THE COMPATIBILITY FIRST. The 308 was very new, and not on the list. I contacted Edimax, and a few days later, they sent me a firmware upgrade file. I installed it and BINGO! It worked. Very little set-up, and it works really well.
Summary: It is an excellent product and it does what it promises. I have even bought another one for another flat. Further I can say I used with the USB dongle by Vodafone (the PAYG one) and it works great and I could even connect to the IP camera and it works well but you cannot see since you cannot get an external IP address. Bottom line: I fully recommend it.
Summary: Worked straight out of the box ~ plugged in the dongle within a minute or so it was working. I just set up the security options and away I went! Works with my laptop on XP, Desktop on XP and my netbook on Linux (inc Linux which the dongle itself does not do). Range seems to be evry good around the home and garden. Took it away on holiday with dongle and hey - presto a wifi zone around the holiday home ~ I'm very satisfied.
Summary: This is the first router i have ever had and i only bought this because i only have a 3G usb stick and once i put the new firmware on it and entered the vadefone settings it worked straight away. i get a slightly faster download speed than i did with the 3G dongle pluged into the Pc and if you use it with a xbox 360 enable upnp in the router settings to stop NAT problems + the Wi-Fi is strong aswel.
Summary: Really impressed by this little gadget , so easy to set up and very reliable , using it withan Orange dongle . far more reliable than my BT connection . In fact so long as it keeps going as strong as it is now ,I will be getting rid of the wired connection.
