Everything about it is worse than my phone
My phone has gotten over 100 megabits in the same spot.
The reason i bought this is because it says 300 megabits per second on the box but i have never seen it break 50. Mostly it is around 0.2 - 30 megabits per second.
Frequency band locking would have been usefull.
I have set it to "4g only" which didn't really help.
No 5ghz wifi.
OK but not great
After reading some UK reviews I settled on this TP-Link MR 6400 4G router for $156 from Officeworks. Easy to set up and connected readily to my network. I am using it to connect to a Wyzecam single camera and so far that seems to work fine. However, when I connect it to my home computer after some minutes it tends to disconnect and is slow to respond. Prior to this I had been been using my mobile hotspot to connect to my computer and that works OK. Only occasionally do I get a three bar connection but it usually sits on two bars. I was expecting it to pull in a strong signal but alas that isn't the case. I just wonder whether a $25 dongle from Kmart may have served my purposes just as well.
Purchased in May 2019.
Works just fine
I bought a second one of these earlier this year, to add as my 3rd AP for my home WiFi network. I have installed it into my garage shed, as my WiFi signal level from the house was struggling "in the shed".
While I am only using it as a "wired" Access Point, (Cat6 daisy chained from my ISP's ADSL2+ router), - it is working just fine. Handles "standard" IPTV streaming effortlessly.
I had converted my original (2 YO?) MR6400 "back" to a stand alone WiFi AP some time earlier, having originally purchased and used it in 4G Modem mode. I am now kee...
Slower 4G data than a pocket modem and phone hotspot.
These modems are slow.!
I have purchased 2, One for Optus and One Telstra. Yes they work. But the data speed is terrible.
With a normal pocket modem I get 20mb down and 5mb up.
In this modem in the same spot. 4mb down and 0.7mb up? My phone works better on hot spot..!
I have tested in a number of locations across Victoria. Checked the APN settings.?
Sorry, I thought these would rock, having big antenna's. Junk in my book. I will feel bad to sell them so I might just bin them.!
I got these for when i travel, hoping the signal would be better. Gee I wish I had found a good review.
I just hope I have helped someone else..!
