Summary: I bought two of these units as a temporary solution while a fault on my line was being rectified. I had USB modems from BT and 3 and both units failed initially to work with either. I them upgraded the firmware, and downloaded the (from the limited selection available) bin files which were not even specified for the modems I had. The BT modem connected sometimes (after 10 - 15 minutes of trying) but the connection was not stable.

Summary: Tried setting up this router with both Vodafone 3G USB dongle and Reliance Netconnect+ dongle. First it would say "Identifying" and then would say "Unplugged". Tried everything: upgrading firmware, downloading new .bin files for USB dongle. Nothing worked. Tech support line is always busy. Wasted money.

Summary: I will strongly suggest that you don't buy this product. Read on for details. Cons 1. Very Poor WiFi The WiFi doesn't work even 20-25 feet apart on the same floor. This isn't even in the same league as any standard LinkSys / Airlink+ routers. 2. WAN (Internet Connection) Frequently Disconnects Unreliable WiFi support for WAN Port, frequently disconnects on heavy usage 3. Doesn't work with Huawei E303C Data Card 4.
Summary: Very bad product. Too much issues. speed issues. 1st problem is didnt detect my AC 2736 modem. solving that problem after two days. 2nd problem is speed divides too much. facing very much speed problem on this device. older model Version v1 is more better.
Summary: i have had the wrong item sent three times to me after being assured i would get the correct one.i ordered the one in the picture but got the old one sent to me even after being on the phone for some time with some people who couldnt understand properly what i was saying. its a bad day when a simple request cant be sorted.
Summary: I purchased this router 3 months back. I am using Tata Photon Dongle EC-156. This is not compatible with router. I have to make too many call on toll free number of TP-Link (must tell you they have even worst customer care). Then i make an email to them, then they replied for up-gradation of firmware. After that Router identified the router and works fine.
Summary: Flipkart is at his best to deliver the product in right time line so three cheers for Flipkart :). However, the router has tremendous problems with its initialization with Cable modem (Scientific Atlanta). I have raised the issues with TP link support and waiting for their help. I would request everybody to take a call with TP LINK support before going for this product.
Summary: I have had this item for 6 months and it has stopped working. It would appear that the usb socket is not working properly as the dongle works fine when plugged into the laptop and the laptop can connect to the wireless network. It shows that the router is constantly trying to identify the dongle. Having spend a fruitless hour trying to find how to communicate with the supplier I have resorted to this review in the hope it might stimulate a response.
Summary: i bought this 3g router a while ago and sent it back the same day as it didnt like either my o2 dongle or my vodafone dongle , never mind what i tried it just wouldnt recognise them even with the downloadable update , it may have just a dodgy unit i cant be sure however amazon being amazon refunded me instantly upon receipt of the returned unit.
