Easy and Powerful
With the router that came with my high speed internet service, I had been having sporadic coverage in most of my house including a "weak" signal on my internet enabled TV in the very next room. Streaming movies and even music was hit and miss. I considered getting a range extender but as we all know, the chain is only as strong as the weakest link. After reading several reviews and product specs, I narrowed my search to the 6200.
Excellent bargain router, but not without it's quirks
Bought this to replace the shockingly poor D-Link DSL-2640R which was unable to maintain a stable connection (i.e. frequent disconnects) and, more annoyingly still, would not reconnect quickly (or at all sometimes) after it had dropped the connection.
The TP-Link by contrast is a marvel, holds the connection well and - should the line have problems - reconnects quickly and without requiring a reboot.
Great little device
I've used an older version of this little router (E853) and it has been a lifesaver on all overseas trips. I am yet to find a network that it does not support. I tested out my new E586E and it's just as good when it comes to functionality and it seems to work faster. I like the look of an all black device too. A few notes that I wished that someone had told me before: T-Mobile in USA will not work on any speed above G2/EDGE, so it's painstakingly slow. No issues with T-Mobile overseas.
3G router, hotspot, Ethernet-to-WiFi adapter, relatively easy to use, USB powered, well priced
The ASUS WL-330N3G is a mobile router with lots of useful functions. Not only can it be used to distribute a 3G broadband connection, it can also act as a hotspot and even as a regular wireless router for a wired Internet connection. It's very versatile and it's also affordable. It's a good tool for any business user's briefcase.
Pocket-sized 3G router
The Asus WL-330N3G is a mobile router with lots of useful functions. Not only can it be used to distribute a 3G broadband connection, it can also act as a hotspot and even as a regular wireless router for a wired Internet connection. At Bangalore, we found that the WL-330N3G could be purchased at an end-user price of Rs. 2,700. Thus being versatile and affordable, it is a good tool for any business user's briefcase
Ultra portable, Large, versatile feature set
Leave it to Asus to create a router that can also act as a repeater, access point, Ethernet adapter, hotspot, and 3G sharing device. While that versatility is great on its own, add in the fact that this device will fit in your pocket and that makes it a truly exciting product for users on the go. The price of $69.99 for all of this is well worth it and Asus makes setup as easy as possible with their intuitive web interface.
Great portable travel router
This little portable router worked perfectly, with the setup minimal. Only thing missing was a case or pouch to carry it.
I went to Las Vegas recently with my Nexus 7 tablet, which does not have a wired ethernet port. I also assumed that some of the hotels in Vegas still had wired internet connections in their rooms. My stay was at the Monte Carlo, which only has the wired connection in the room.
Useful and portable tool for sharing a 3G web connection
TP-Link's TL-MR3020 is a useful and portable tool for sharing a 3G web connection, and it offers very good value in comparison to similar products. We found consistent and reliable performance in our tests. The router isn't locked to a mobile network, although it's worth checking that your USB dongle is compatible before you buy by going to the TP-Link website and searching for 3G/3.75G USB Modem Compatibility List.
Great MiFi/Hotspot for general use, useless for P2P work
I have a Huawei E585 mobile hotspot unit, but the bad limitation of that unit is that only 5 WiFi devices can connect at the same time, which for our family (2 x laptops, 3 x phones, Android Tablet, Wii, WiFi Printer, etc) is not enough, and we have to power units off/on all the time to get things working.
When I saw the new ZTE MF80 I was very happy to order it - 10 x WiFi devices are allowed, 4G capability (faster for me), etc, it seemed great.
Full Featured Wireless Router
A final comment about the bandwidth that this unit supports. You need to keep in mind that no matter how fast and how much data a router can pass, it cannot make your Internet connection any bigger or any faster! So, if your Internet connection is capable of 10 gigabits per second and your router is capable of 800 gigabits per second guess what? The fastest connection you can get is 10 gigabits per second!!
I configured the OBi110 to use Google Voice, and it completely replaced my home telephone service. With free long distance within the US, the device will pay for itself in savings in a couple of months.
Configuring the device was easy. The online documentation was decent, and I found a few other blogs with tutorials as well. I recommend using the obitalk web site for ease of configuration.
Free calling via Google Voice
The Obi110 bridges your phones together, letting you make calls from a traditional phone handset, but using Google Voice, a mobile phone service, or other VoIP or telephone services. It's not truly plug-and-play ready, but the OBi can pay off if you take the time to configure it.
