Summary: Seller has shipped October 2013 manufacturing router which needed firmware update. Once I reset router to factory setting it requires firmware update again to . 1. Seller should not old stocks. 2. TP-Link support is not acceptable.
Excerpt: The power button need to be slide in certain way else the the power led blinks but wifi does not start. I believe it does not power up the dongle well. As in poor network are it could not connect to mts data card but in same are micromax 440 did well
