Summary: This is some sort of bridging router. Requires no configuration and can work right out of the box, quite literally. However, it is recommended to at least login once to alter the default password for management. In order to do this you will have to manually configure a machine with an IP address on 192.168.0.0 network, (instead of the 192.168.1.0 network its DHCP server gives you) like 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.0.253, so that you can connect to TPLink's 192.168.0.254 web...
Good Product, Documentation Flaws, Slow 3G/4G Error Recovery

Excerpt: Now a days every computer components has a standard charger i.e micro usb charger. But this router doesn't have this type of charger. Comparatively micromax & huawei all datacards are working perfectly in this router. If u considered BSNL EVDO network u can choose this router otherwise micromax mmx 440w router is the best router (In this type of router all modems are working basically micromax & huawei also in 2g&3g mode which mode is selected in computer).
Excerpt: Compatibility of the product should be attached with the product information, when it is for sale. After purchasing the router, it is found that the router not compatible with the dongle. No solution at all.
