Not compatible with Truconnect USB760 (If your USB stick is not on the compatibility list you are out of luck)
10 February 2013
Summary: Purchased this modem to work with an embedded device that requires Ethernet. Had had success with a Cradlepoint modem in the past and thought I would give this a go since the USB760 modem from Truconnect appeared on the "other" list on the TP-link site and the price was good. Truconnect is not an option in the TP-link settings for the USA region but the carrier they use (Sprint) is so I tried that.
Does not work with Verizon USB760 3G modem as advertised
4 February 2013
Summary: Though Verizon USB760 3G modem is listed as compatible it does not work even with the latest firmware. Switching from default configuration to manual advanced settings does not help either. Technical support is not able to provide any meaningful assistance. One example of the general sloppiness are the setup instructions that refer to a pin number that was supposed to be on the device label.
Not compatible with Dlink dongle DWM156 - flase statement in TPLink website
Suman Dutta, amazon.in
9 February 2014
Summary: As per TPlink website, the router is compatible with the Dlink dongle DWM156(see compatibility list for Singapore) or [...]. They also suggested to download and apply the corresponding file from the bin [...] in case it does not work even with the latest firmware. I tried all these combinations but nothing worked. The router could detect the dongle properly but while trying to 'connect' to internet, it is failing.
Summary: Unfortunately this product was somewhat unstable with the connection regularly stalling and having to reset. The stick itself was operating fine and in the same location plugged into a PC it worked flawlessly. I own other TP-Link products that are really superb, so this product was unfortunately a let down.
Summary: I bought this portable router to use with a 3g mobile dongle from 3 in the UK. The problem is that it was not compatible with the particular dongle that I had recently purchased (Huawei E3256). I had read earlier reviews about compatibility issues but in my wisdom I thought it can't be all that bad and surely it will work with a new dongle after all it is a new router !!
Excerpt: Покупал для Yota modem 150, определил нормально все работает, но периодически отваливается Wi Fi, каждые 20 мин. Приходится перезагружать каждый раз как отваливается инет. Покупался как точка доступа для Yota.
Summary: Nach 4 Tagen habe ich das Gerät wieder zurüc geschickt. + Gewicht und Abmessung + Installation + Funktionsumfang + funktioniert tadellos mit Linux und Android - Konfiguration: im WISP mode lässt sich der Kanal nicht einstellen. - Funktioniert mit KEINEM Apple Gerät (iPhone, iPod, iPad, MacBook, macminmi): die Verbindung wird nach 30 Sekunden gekappt. Von wem ? Das war nicht zhu erkennen. Die WIFI Analyse auf dem Mac hat jedenfalls keine Fehlermeldung gezeigt.
