Summary: This router works great as an Access Point but not great as a 3G router. It keeps dropping connection and I had to continually keep rebooting the router. I bought this for my parents so they gave it back to me after a few days. I use it as an Access Point now and it works great for that purpose. Helpful tip: The firmware is a bit old and there is a newer version available on the TP-Link website.
Summary: I purchased this item to function as bridge between home network and W-CDMA network. Stick used is Huawei E353 which was recognized instantly without need to upgrade firmware or other extra work. The router keeps the link up well and has decent performance. Wlan coverage is smaller than with old router though and shipped power adapter was with UK plug to European purchase, minor annoyance but nothing to take points from the product itself.
Ideal for mobile broadband but failed after 9 months
18 March 2013
Summary: UPDATE Recommended ? Yes and no. It has now failed after 9 months. There is still a connection from the laptop to the router, however the internet connection is intermittent to non exsistant, mainly non exsistant. Resetting the router or unplugging it from the mains supply doesn't help. The dongle works corectly when connected directly to my laptop. So reduced from 5 star to 3 star. Worth the money ?
Summary: Overall I am happy with this product. But could not find out the way to use the WiFi button on the side. There is no button at all. Any one has any idea on how to switch on/off wifi at the push of a button on this modem
Summary: I had a ZTE airtel 3G card which is not compatible with this one. I had to get it replaced with a hwawei model. Please check the TP-link compatiblility list before ordering. Overall its good value for money and Im happy with it.

Summary: Der USB Anschluss dieses Routers liefert nicht genügend Strom, um ein Huawei E3276 Modem (z.B. Telekom Speedstick LTE III) zu betreiben. Auch mit der neuesten Firmware wird der Stick gar nicht erkannt. Abhilfe schafft ein Y-USB-Kabel, über das man Strom von einem zusätzlichen USB Ladegerät zuführt. Das ganze funktioniert, führt aber zu einigem Kabelsalat. Positiv ist der geringe Preis und dass man den Router mit Open Source Software betreiben kann.
