Summary: This used to work with my Sierra 312U Bigpond Ultimate (White) but now it drops the connection regularly and is unusable with a blinking blue light on the Sierra USB modem. Not sure what has changed, we now have to connect direct to the Macbook which holds the connection. I am now looking for a replacement.
Summary: My USB modem is MTS Mblaze(AC2746). Initially it was not connecting with this modem, but after firmware upgrade was able to connect, but internet speed is very very slow. Talked with TP Link customer care, they said router might be faulty. Now flipkart has processed a replacement. Once I recieve the replacement, will update my comments. Anyone has problem with ZTE AC2746 MTS modem and got it working, please help me.

Summary: I bought this router, to enable wi-fi connection from one central location within the home and to save having to move the dongle from laptop to main pc. As I dont have a landline or conventional broadband, I use a variety of 3G services from 3 Mobile, Orange and T-Mobile each with their own high speed dongle. Outside of the router, these dongles all give rock solid 4 or 5 bar signal, and download speeds of between 1.5 and 4mpbs when plugged directly in a PC or laptop.
Summary: I bought this router from a local shop in Bangalore for a little lesser price than flipkart. Brought home installed, everything was fine. But when I started using it for some heavy downloading, it began to give problems. I wouldn't recommend this router to anyone. If you directly connect your 3g Modem to PC, you'll get better speeds than connecting it through router. Pros : Cheap Easy to setup Good looks and build quality.
Summary: I brought the TL-MR3220 thinking that I could use it as a backup for my network here in Lanzarote Spain. I did look to see if the Movistar USB modem was on the compatibility list and sure enough the ZTE MF190 was there. I have tried to set this up and although the router sees the USB modem it will not connect. I have spoken with the support at TP-Link and downloaded, installed the new firmware. It just does not work.
Summary: The main two drawbacks are: 1. Does not work 2G (GPRS/EDGE) network area. (very serious problem if u r in rural area) 2. WiFi coverage is maximum 6-7 meter in building and upto 10 meter in open area. Rest all is fine. Excellent delivery by Flipkart. Wide range of datacards support. Light weight and good looking router. Very good control interface via browser.
