Short-lived and unreliable ~ the world's first disposable router?

1 November 2015
Summary: Firstly an aggravation that can't really be blamed on TP-LINK. There seem to be a lot of 3G dongle grrrrrs - no-one ever seems to be able to use pre-pay 3G-4G 'out-of-the-box.' This could well be an operator issue.
Summary: Order to Delivery Ordered on Sunday, arrived Wednesday morning sturdily packed, professionally boxed and branded. Compatibility I have read a number of reviews of this product which complain that it would not work at all with their 3g dongle.
Summary: After a long time trying to get it to work the cable supplied with it turned out to be open circuit. I only found this as I was able to borrow a cable from a neighbour. This was notified to TP-link by email and a replacement requested but they only told me to go 'buy one in a shop'.
Summary: Excellent for travel, its tiny and works a treat especially when hotel only provides an ethernet cable for internet, and you've no ability to connect your i device. Only issue is setting the device up initially, as its quite confusing.
Summary: Only just received this router, but it worked straight out of the box and needed no set up. Desktop, iPad, Kindle Fire and phones all connected first time and hold signal well. Range is also very good as there is a strong signal on both floors of the house.
Summary: This router really is the best portable 3G/4G compatible router out there. Very versatile - can act as so many different things. Very reliable! Stable for weeks on end. Does true routing, firewall, port forwarding, etc.. There is nothing quite like it. This is my second one.
Summary: Great for all manner of uses.... giving wifi connection to a device that only has a fixed Ethernet port; creating your own wifi hotspot in a hotel that only provided fixed Ethernet (or their own wifi is really flaky!
