Great for a fast, reliable 4G connection
on 21 December 2013
I've had this 4G router for a few weeks and it has worked flawlessly in that time. I've tried it (in the UK) with 3G SIMs on O2 and Three, and a 4G SIM on Vodafone. Although there is a low signal strength on 4G in my (rural) area, I get a fast, reliable connection with this router. According to the user guide it works on the following frequencies for 4G LTE: 800, 900, 1800, 2600 MHz.
The multi-lingual quick installation guide has just a couple of pages in English describing the basics you need to know, including the router's IP address, admin username and password. More detailed information is in user guide on the provided CD. The user guide may be helpful when you are setting up the router via the administrative interface.
I found that some fields described could be left blank as they weren't appropriate, e.g. "dialed number" and "PIN code" (if you don't use one on the SIM). The APN details will be available from your service provider (or via a web search). Note that the two DNS server fields have default values of 0.0.0.0, so you need to change them to valid values or else you won't get a connection. WPA2 wireless security is available.
A full-sized SIM card slot is provided, and a micro or nano SIM can be used with an adaptor. A 2-pin power supply necessitates the use of an adaptor in the UK - a shaver adaptor plug/socket works fine. I did find that the 1A fuse in my shaver adaptor blew when I pulled the plug out whilst forgetting to firstly switch the router off at the back. I don't know if it would have blown otherwise (this was after a few days), but the adaptor works fine with the 3A fuse I used as a replacement.
Note that this is not a MiFi, with an internal battery, that you can carry around with you - it needs a 12V external supply, though I'm sure you could use it in a car with a suitable cable.
I'm really happy with this router and can highly recommend it.
