    Bought used from the pro shop a few months ago when ADSL gave up and fiber is half a year away. Provides good coverage throughout the house (240 square), has not experienced losing units. Never restarted. At present, I have 4 phones, 2 laptops, 4, tablets, TV, Google home, Philips hat, a camera and two wifi lights attached to it and everything floats on gallantly. Simple interface and easy to set up.

    We live in the country and the speed for 4g is nothing to brag about, commuting between 2-18. Has no external antenna but it satisfies the family's basic internet needs anyway. See how it gets when fiber is pulled in, which I understand it should continue to use.

    Absolutely amazing that it lacks gigabit ethernet ... Bought this and had good results with 4G, got fiber to the house and ordered without thinking about 250/100, hard to get out more than 100Mbit with the ports on this unfortunately ... :)

    Bought it to use it as the main router with Telia mobile broadband subscription.

    negative:
    Felt a bit of plastic when I mounted it on the way to the price, but otherwise I can not complain about the quality of the building.

    Positively:
    When we talk about functionality, I can only say that it works top. The software is wonderful, as much as can be set while it is super easy and of course where to find all the settings.

    It has good very good coverage (I live in the forest quite far from the nearest mast) and get between 10-20 mb / s down and between 5-10mb / s up. Should you use external antennas that you mount on the house and target them to the nearest mast you would probably get even better results.

    Conclusion:
    In short, I can do anything I want with it (browse the web, watch 1080P 60fps videos from YouTube, Spotify and play games with others online). Also, it is connected to my NAS (Synology), which works great and I could easily set a fixed IP address for it.

    Super pleased and recommend it warmly. :)

    Generally right unstable and faint. Most times, there is nothing that some clients would have connected to it, though I can easily contact it from another client.

    Problem in latest firmware to use VPN on a client. At the moment there is some unofficial beta that can be re-enabled to fix the VPN; tested but then nothing worked more or less, flashed back and lived unable to work from home with it (used tethering by phone instead).

    The interface is as they usually use in most router, ie, cheeky and ugly, even if it works when looking through all non-intuitive menus.

    Earlier, I sat with a Dovado router and a 4G USB dongle. It worked perfectly until I moved the equipment in the house and had to gain antennas p.g.a poor reception. Then I bought TP-Link MR200 instead where everything is neatly packaged in a unit rather than as Dovado solution with router, modem and antenna.

    The router is actually very stable and good, but some things disturb me and can t.o.m be so important that it go out shortly.
    - LAN ports are just 100Mbit. It feels a little strange with an AC router that does not fix the wired gigabit. This is the reason I will switch to another router as soon as I get the fiber in the house.
    - You can unlock for eg 4G / LTE and 3G, but you can not lock the frequency as Dovado do with some 4G dongles. With me it does not matter, but I would have liked to lock to 2600MHz for higher speed despite the 900MHz band has better reception.
    - Built-in antennas for wifi, but still decent range.

    Here are the advantages:
    + Good reception compared with the 4G dongle. The two antennas do benefit compared with antennas in a small 3 / 4G dongle.
    + Just OK interfaces and I do not have to restart the router as soon as you make a change (unlike Dovado).
    + Do you need to get other antennas so it is easier than acquiring adapters TS9 contacts found in dong gland. Here is the SMA connectors.

    The router does what it should do. If you drive mobile broadband as their fixed broadband is a good router that is better suited for those who have shitty reception. If you take the second solution with a Dovado you get buy both routers, 4G dongle and possibly antennas. It will be a more expensive solution than TP-link MR200 although TP is the link in the most expensive team.
