Excellent broadband router,with a budget price tag.
5 May 2014
Summary: I bought this router because it was the cheapest broadband router I could find, it's Chinese made, but to my surprise, it's a great little router with lots of features, and works perfectly with my Telstra Sierra dongle, I have been using it constantly for 3 months so far without any problems. If you're on a budget like me I would recommend it.
Summary: I got this to use in our caravan as our kids are of an age when they need Wi-Fi connection to keep in touch with their friends and complain loudly if they are unable to do so! This router was easy to set up and gives good range outside the caravan too. The 3G dongle simply plugs in to the USB port on the side of the router. I have added a high gain antenna that plugs in to the dongle to ensure a reliable connection in poorer signal areas.
Summary: Before we got decent broadband I bought this to provide a backup connection via an O2 3G PAYG dongle as I need a reliable connection to work from home. This did not disappoint - had no problems getting online with the dongle, even though it is an old one that doesn't work with Windows 8. Have not tried it with 4G as we don't have that in our area. The aerial is big but at least we had a decent wifi signal.
Summary: This is very reasonably priced piece of kit, easily set up, with simple instuctions. Mine was bought to set up in a mobile sales environment, with a laptop connected via ethernet cable to the router, which was connected via the usb port to a 3G Huawei BT Mobile dongle. In turn the router was connected over WiFi to 2 Windows ruggedised Tablets and an iPad. All of these connected seamlessly together, and the 3G connection works very well.
Summary: I bought this Router to set up on a 3G Dongle connection in Slovakia (due to unavailability of normal Broadband connection in area). So it was a bit of risk that it may work & it may not work. I have a 3G USB Dongle (Huawie EC168) with Orange Slovakia. Initially it gave me some issues, but then I realised that its because of the pin code in dial out connection on 3G settings on my account.
